House DFL Leaders: MNsure rates good news for middle class Minnesotans

ST. PAUL, MN – Speaker Paul Thissen and House Majority Leader Erin Murphy released the following statements following today’s release of new rates for health insurance policies that will be available through MNsure that will be the lowest in the nation.

“The big winners today are middle class Minnesotans who will be able to purchase better, private health care coverage at a better price. Minnesota has long been a national health care leader and today’s news keeps Minnesota ahead of the curve. In the coming weeks and months we look forward to more progress as MNsure is brought online and Minnesota families and small businesses can begin utilizing it to purchase affordable health care,” Speaker Paul Thissen

“For middle class Minnesotans, access to dependable and affordable health care is one of their top concerns for the economic security of their family. That is why Governor Dayton and the DFL legislature moved forward this year to create a health insurance exchange. Today’s news delivers piece of mind to Minnesotans that our state is a place where families have access to quality health care coverage at an affordable price. We have work ahead, but the path we are taking is forward,” said House Majority Leader Erin Murphy
