FRIDLEY, Minn. (AP) - A major Minnesota health plan is kicking off a series of informational meetings intended to help people navigate MNsure, the state's new health insurance marketplace.
UCare's first "Marketplace Basics" meeting is Tuesday at Unity Hospital in Fridley. The meetings will help potential MNsure customers understand the new system and figure out which health plan on the marketplace is best for them.
MNsure is Minnesota's online insurance marketplace that's key to enacting federal health care changes under Obamacare. Upcoming UCare informational meetings will be held in Minneapolis, St. Paul and a number of their suburbs and outlying communities.
UCare is a nonprofit health plan that provides coverage to more than 300,000 Minnesotans, with large numbers of its customers from diverse backgrounds as well as people with disabilities who receive medical assistance.
