We reformed health care.
Thousands of Minnesota families have been devastated by the exorbitant premiums resulting from the failure of Obamacare and MNsure. This session, our first priority was bringing relief to those on the individual health insurance market and taking the first steps toward significant market reform.
We delivered, passing $300 million in emergency aid for families whose health insurance premiums skyrocketed up to 67% in one year. We passed legislation allowing patients with serious conditions more time to transition to new providers if their insurance networks changed, and passed the first of many reforms that will bring market stability — using state dollars to share in the cost burden for the sickest patients, thereby lowering premiums for 98% of those in the individual market.
