Final numbers released Friday show health insurance premiums for 2022 in Minnesota increasing between four and 11 percent, depending on provider.  But officials say on average, Minnesota families who purchase health insurance through the MNsure state-run exchange will save 684 dollars per year in premiums because of federal subsidies related to COVID.  MNsure C-E-O Nate Clark:

“More Minnesotans than ever are gonna be eligible to receive tax credits that lower the monthly premium cost, and this is of course a result of the American Rescue plan that was passed last March.”

Clark says Minnesotans will also have more health plan choices than in previous years.  Open enrollment begins November 1st and runs through January 15th of 2022.  But an on-line “Shop and Compare Estimator” will be available before then, on October 11th.
