Deadline nears for Minn. health plan sign-ups


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Just two shopping days left for Minnesota health insurance shoppers who expect to have coverage as the new year starts.

Tuesday is the final day to enroll for a plan through the state's health insurance exchange, known as MNsure. The deadline had been moved from Dec. 23 to accommodate consumers struggling to navigate the clunky Website.

Meanwhile, the board that oversees MNsure will meet Monday afternoon. Members will hear from interim chief executive Scott Leitz, who has been on the job less than two weeks after replacing the prior executive director.

People who sign up by Tuesday have until Jan. 10 to pay their first month's premium. Those that miss the pre-Jan. 1 enrollment deadline have until the end of March to pick a plan before facing penalties.
