St. Paul- State officials disclosed the rates to be offered through Democrats’ Insurance Exchange Friday.  House Commerce and Consumer Protection Committee Republican Lead Joe Hoppe (Chaska) gave the following statement in response.

“Today we learned many hardworking Minnesotans will be forced to pay more for health insurance under Minnesota Democrats’ Insurance Exchange than they do on the private market here in Minnesota. How does making health insurance more expensive encourage more people to get insured?” said Rep. Hoppe.

Minnesota Democrats are expected to spend more than $330 million on their exchange by 2016.

“More than a hundred million taxpayer dollars have been spent so far but not one penny has been spent on actual health care like pediatric check-ups for kids, preventative screenings for women or prescriptions for the elderly,” said Rep. Hoppe.

MNsure’s Legislative Oversight Committee meets Tuesday, September 10th at 3:30 pm in Room 10 of the State Office Building.

“I look forward to our upcoming hearing where we can hopefully get answers to outstanding questions Democrats have, so far, failed to provide,” concluded Rep. Hoppe.
