Statement on Reinsurance and MinnesotaCare Buy-In

St. Paul, Minn. – In advance of a vote on House File 5, a bill relating to reinsurance, State Representative Erin Murphy (DFL-St. Paul) released the following statement:


"I am working for health care solutions that will allow Minnesotans to see a doctor or nurse and know they can pay for it. The proposed plan for reinsurance fails that goal, favoring powerful insurance companies over the health of Minnesotans. The Republicans' reinsurance plan is incredibly expensive and makes no commitment to affordable premiums, stronger provider networks or more coverage options.


“The MinnesotaCare Buy-In is a tested and trusted plan that will extend affordable coverage to thousands more Minnesotans by providing access to stable, statewide networks. It's time to come together around solutions that will work for Minnesotans. We will continue fighting for affordable care that is available across Minnesota. Reinsurance does not meet that goal."
