KIMT News 3 — Another deadline is nearly here when it comes to signing up for MNsure. Saturday is the last day you can sign up if you want coverage by March 1.
You must do it before 5 p.m. because that is when account services will go down for maintenance until Tuesday at 6 a.m.
Those assisting with MNsure sign ups say things are getting better, but some kinks still need to be worked out.
“There is improvement and I think we do have sort of a mountain of corrections trying to be made that is creating some challenges for everyone,” said Edward Hubbard of Hubbard Agency.
The Saturday deadline does not apply to those signing up for state-subsidized insurance through medical assistance or Minnesota care. The Minnesota care deadline is February 28.
There is still time left to get coverage in 2014 though. That deadline is on March 31.
The challenges with MNsure are expected to be addressed this year during the 2014 Minnesota legislative session that begins on February 25.
