ST. PAUL, Minn. (FOX 9) - Minnesota's health insurance marketplace MNsure announced Wednesday it will begin its 2020 enrollment period at the start of November.
Enrollment will remain open for seven weeks from November 1 to December 23.
MNsure says the timespan is actually eight days longer than the federal enrollment period. The agency says they want to give patients more time to find a plan that works for them. To supplement that goal, MNsure says they have 1,600 assistants available to provide help for Minnesotans seeking coverage.
Patients can start comparing plans in mid-October ahead of enrollment.
