Sign up for health insurance on MnSure is open. The deadline to sign up is December 23rd. MnSure C-E-O Nate Clark was asked what happens if people don’t sign up.

“If they don’t sign up they will not be able to sign up on MnSure next year without a qualifying life event,” said Clark.

Clark says signing up is easy “Head to and it’s a straight forward process. Based on the information they enter they can receive information on any tax credits that may be available. After that, they can shop for plans.”

Clark says he encourages persons to contact independent brokers to assist consumers in the process. He says there are 13 such brokers in the Mankato area.
