Minn. health insurance board addresses conflicts

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The citizen board that’s directing Minnesota’s new, state-run health insurance exchange is working on a policy to govern their own possible conflicts of interest.

The board of directors of MNsure met Wednesday in St. Paul. That’s the new online marketplace that will help enact President Obama’s health care overhaul, and is likely to help extend health insurance to about 300,000 Minnesotans who don’t currently have it.

Most on the seven-member board have ties to the health care industry. They’re working on a policy that requires them not to use their positions to profit personally or to assist others in profiting at the expense of MNsure.
