There will be a one week enrollment extension. The special enrollment period will take place from February 1-8.
Medica will accept new enrollments. On Tuesday, it was announced that Medica ended up below their enrollment cap and will be able to accept new enrollees through February 8th. Medica policies are only available through MNsure this year.
APTC vs. 25% Rebate: SF 1 excludes people who receive federal advanced premium tax credits (APTC) from also receiving the 25% state premium rebate. If a person receives no APTC, they will automatically receive the 25% state rebate.
Some people between 300-400% of Federal Poverty Guidelines qualify for an APTC, but either receive very little or nothing because of Obamacare's APTC calculation. This means an individual making $36,180-$48,240 may receive a substantially better benefit with the state rebate.
If you have already enrolled in a plan and receives an APTC that provides less benefit than what you would receive from the 25% rebate, you may cancel that policy and re-enroll without an APTC in order to benefit from the state rebate. This must be done by February 8.

Pro Life Measures
As you know, I am committed to protecting all life and believe it is our duty to protect those most vulnerable. I have co-authored a number of bills aimed at making sure we do just that. One will make sure the state of Minnesota is not sending taxpayer money to fund abortions while another will make abortion clinics subject to state inspections for safety. I will keep you up to date on the progress we make defending life this session.
Have a great weekend,
