ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The board in charge of Minnesota's new health insurance marketplace will begin hearing regular presentations from its future customers.
The MNsure board holds its second meeting Wednesday. On the agenda is a short presentation from Dana Hoenigschmidt, owner of a child care company in St. Francis that employs 25 people. According to MNsure's website, she's hoping MNsure will bring down her soaring health insurance premiums and let her provide her employees with high quality health plans.
The board will also get an update on customer service preparations.
About 1.3 million Minnesotans are expected to get coverage through MNsure, including 300,000 who currently don't have insurance, under the Obama administration's health care overhaul. The system is due to go live Oct. 1, offering plans that will take effect in January.
