Call to Action: Insurance Open Enrollment
It's open enrollment for ObamaCare, and things are good in Minnesota. Individual rates were stabilized by a legislative reinsurance -- basically, the State of MN picks up the expensive part tab for some of the sickest patients. (It's not an insurance company bailout, it pays for care.)
In 2016, MN's uninsured rate dropped to 4.1% (from 9% in 2011) -- less than half the national average of 8.8%. That's truly impressive.
Of course, President Trump's administration has been doing a lot to undercut the ACA. They've slashed the outreach budget by 90% - only 10% remains - and shrank the enrollment period.
