A few important things to note for 2022:

  • Monthly premiums for Medicare Advantage plans are expected to drop in 2022 to an average of $19
  • The availability of telehealth benefits will continue to expand
  • Virtual check-ins with doctors and other health care providers are available to all Medicare beneficiaries

Minnesotans not yet eligible for Medicare have until January 15 to enroll in healthcare options through MNSure. Every household that pays more than 8.5% of their income on health insurance now qualifies for federal tax credits to help cover the costs.

Eligible Minnesotans can apply and enroll in MNSure here, or you can call MNSure's contact center at 651-539-2099 (855-366-7873 outside the Twin Cities) between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
