RELEASE: Minnesota House launches MNSure feedback website
SAINT PAUL, MN— On Thursday, March 31st, House Republicans in the State Government Finance Committee launched a website to gather comments and feedback from Minnesota families, taxpayers and small business owners affected by MNsure. Minnesotans testified before their committee on this week about the difficulties they have faced with our state's health care exchange. The most recent concerns revolve around the thousands of Minnesotans who are waiting on their 1095-A form to file their taxes, an issue that MNsure has promised to finally resolve by the end of last week.
"MNsure's failures continue to accumulate with their substantial backlog of 1095-A forms being just the latest example," said Representative Sarah Anderson (R-Plymouth), Chair of the State Government Finance Committee. "MNsure must be held accountable to the people it serves, and unfortunately, legislators often do not hear about many of these problems until it is brought to light by constituents. I am hopeful individuals will share their stories on our newly launched MNsure comment page to help us better understand the difficulties that people are experiencing with our health care exchange, and the impact it is having on Minnesotans across the state."
"For months there has been a steady stream of people calling my office asking for help with MNSure," said Rep. Bob Dettmer (R- Forest Lake). "People have been enrolled in programs they don't qualify for, are confused with how to file their taxes, and are frustrated with how much their deductibles and premiums have increased. The system is broken, and we need to find a solution. I hope people will take the time to share their stories and insights to help us find a solution that makes health care in Minnesota affordable and efficient."
