  •  Positive experience with MNSure (4+ / 0-)

    My wife and I moved back to the US in September after 30 years abroad.  Neither of us has a lot of work experience in the US, so our SS payouts will be small.  She's under 65, and so was eligible to apply for health insurance through the MN exchange, MNSure.  

    A while back we went to an insurance agent at AAA to apply for her, and he walked us through the web site.  Since she had all her bureaucratic ducks in a row, this wasn't difficult, and we were through the process in an hour and a half or so.  Her online application was accepted by the system, and we have since gotten written confirmation from MNSure though we are still waiting for the paperwork with the policy choices and premiums.  We have been told by MNSure that she is eligible for subsidies, so the premiums should be quite modest.  

    Considering she has COPD, a chronic  dermatological problem, and is a breast cancer survivor, she wouldn't have had an ice cube's chance in hell of getting any kind of coverage without MNSure. Meanwhile, I've been approved for Medicare A and B.  Between the two, we're feeling a whole lot more at ease in terms of our long-term prospects in this dystopic country than we did when we arrived.  Hooray for the ACA and for a Dem majority in the MN legislature that approved a state exchange system!
