Health insurance premiums in Minnesota are expected to rise four to 11 percent next year, but C-E-O Nate Clark says those who buy through the MNsure state-run exchange will pay on average 684 dollars less than last year, because of federal American Rescue dollars:
“Most Minnesotans enrolled who qualify to receive these tax credits are gonna see savings in 2022.”
Republican Representative Anne Neu Brindley from North Branch responds:
“Those subsidies will not apply to everyone. There are a large number of Minnesotans who *are* going to see these rate increases.”
Republicans say Minnesota House Democrats are responsible for scaling back the state’s “reinsurance” program, causing health insurance premiums to go up. House D-F-Lers declined to comment.
