MNsure board approves plan to let customers shop at third-party websites

Thursday, April 16, 2015

From the ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS: Faced with widespread and public technology problems, MNsure's board is struggling with whether to prioritize fixes to the website where customers can buy private health insurance, or to the software running public health programs such as Medical Assistance. On Wednesday, the board approved a proposal by member Thompson Aderinkomi to develop tools so MNsure customers could shop for health plans on third-party websites and even enroll in plans there. All of this would be fast-tracked with the goal of finishing before open-enrollment starts in October.
