Governor Dayton Pushes For MNsure Fix
Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton is asking state legislators to set politics aside to help families facing skyrocketing health care premiums.
With MNsure’s open enrollment beginning on November 1st, Governor Dayton is racing against the clock.
On Tuesday Governor Dayton sent a letter asking legislators to come up with a solution.
In a press conference Dayton stressed his request for caucus leaders to draft an agreeable solution before next month.
Last week, Dayton announced a proposal he sent to legislators to use around $300 million that was scheduled to be added to the reserve in December.
Instead, he wants the money to go toward helping families who purchase insurance in the individual market and don’t qualify for federal tax credits.
Dayton says he’s not only looking for an immediate, temporary solution, but he plans to continue to work with other leaders to reform the Affordable Care Act.
