MNsure says website, call center running well 31 Mar 14

 

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Officials with Minnesota’s health insurance exchange say the website and call center are functioning well as the deadline looms for open enrollment.

MNsure spokeswoman Jenni Bowring-McDonough said Sunday that the website has been stable this weekend and the call center is adequately staffed.

Minnesotans have until 11:59 p.m. Monday to enroll for health insurance coverage or face federal tax penalties under the federal Affordable Care Act. MNsure will grant reprieves for people who make a good-faith effort to enroll but can’t complete the process before the deadline.

Going into the final weekend, more than 152,000 Minnesotans had enrolled in coverage through MNsure as of Friday. The exchange plans to hold more than 50 sign-up events across the state Monday.
