Signup on the Minnesota Health Insurance Exchange ended Monday. MnSure CEO Nate Clark says he’s pleased with the numbers.

“The sign-up period was shorter this year,” said Clark. “There’s always news swirling than creates uncertainty but folks realize the value the MnSure brings.”

MnSure says 117-thousand 520 Minnesotans signed up for health coverage on the exchange and 53 percent of those individuals received tax credits.
