How To Sign Up for Obamacare in Minnesota

by

To sign up for a health plan under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) you can go directly to the online health insurance marketplace for Minnesota -- or you can get help in person or over the phone.

For 2020 health plans, Minnesota open enrollment ended on December 23, 2019. However, you may still be able to purchase health insurance for this year if you qualify for a special enrollment period; see What Happens If I Missed the Enrollment Deadline for 2020?

Where's the Minnesota Health Care Exchange?

You can find the health insurance exchange for Minnesota at MNsure. This is where you can learn about the various health insurance options available to you under Obamacare. If you see a plan you like, you'll be guided through the enrollment process online. 

Getting In-Person Help with Enrollment

In Minnesota, if you need help understanding your options for coverage under Obamacare or signing up for a plan, you can get free assistance from a certified navigator.

A navigator (often called an "assister" in Minnesota) can explain your options, answer your questions, and help you apply for the plan you choose -- but they can't recommend a specific plan for you.

Private insurance agents or brokers can also help you understand your health care coverage options under Obamacare. Unlike government-trained navigators and counselors, they are allowed to suggest the best plan for you.

Find a navigator. To find a certified navigator, go to the Find a Navigator page at MNsure.

Talk to a broker. To directly connect with a Minnesota insurance broker who can help you evaluate insurance plans and choose a plan that's appropriate for your situation, call 800-943-6832. (We receive advertising income from the licensed brokers who offer their services through this telephone number.)

Getting Help by Phone

If you want answers over the phone, call the toll-free number for MNsure at 855-366-7873.

Telephone support is available Monday through Thursday from 8AM to 5PM and Friday from 8AM to 4PM. The support center is currently closed on Saturday and Sunday, but that may change during open enrollment.
