ObamaCare: Bringing Health Insurance To Minnesotans

Jeremy Olson: Minnesota Insured Rate Spikes After MNsure

Tens of thousands of Minnesotans gained health coverage between 2013 and 2015, pushing the state’s uninsured rate to an all-time low as federal health reform took hold across the state. A biannual survey released Monday by the Minnesota Department of Health and the University of Minnesota showed that 213,000 more residents had health insurance last year compared to 2013. The share of Minnesotans lacking coverage plummeted from 8.2 percent to 4.3 percent, with progress in virtually all demographic groups.

State officials hailed the role of MNsure, despite vexing technical problems for the online marketplace, for connecting more Minnesotans with coverage they previously lacked or couldn’t afford. Expanded eligibility for the state’s Medicaid program helped as well, along with new rules allowing young adults to remain on their parents’ health plans. The results were “an unprecedented advance for the health and security of Minnesota families — particularly those who had previously been lost in the gaps of our system,” said Dr. Ed Ehlinger, state health commissioner.

    Luvvie has a recap of her time at the Black Women of Hollywood/Essence Luncheon:

    Still Reveling in Joy From ESSENCE’s Black Women in Hollywood 2016

    Awesomely Luvvie — March 9, 2016

    Every single time I’ve gone to the ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon, I’ve floated away from it. No, I don’t walk away from there. I glide on clouds because that room is nothing short of spell-binding. It puts you in a high that you can’t come down from for at least a day. It is a room without ego, because everybody in there is doing epic things. It is a room without limits because the people in the chairs have shattered ceilings. And it is a room without doubt because the lives of the women in it testify to the power of believing that you belong.

    Love the good news from my home state. its amazing what can be accomplished when you work with PBO and his admin. MNSure had a rocky rollout, but the numbers speak for themselves over the long haul. Also, our fabulous Gov. Dayton deserves many Kudos for this milestone.

    VOTING MATTERS! just ask the state next door that won’t expand Medicaid. As Pres. Obama said, “with the stroke of his pen (Gov of WI) over 20,000 people would gain coverage overnight!”

      Sen. Warren if you could see me now I am giving you a standing ovation. The type of things she was talking about is why there is a Donald J. KKK Trump.

      Very powerful statement by Sen. Warren. I’ll bet not one Republican senator heard her because they are too arrogant to care about the constitution or doing their job.

      And that folks is why we need to keep Elizabeth Warren in the Senate representing the Democrats! Shades of the Lion of the Senate.

      Senator Warren is awesome. She spoke on our behalf and she really let it rip.

    I thought I was in the know about “all-things-Obama” but I seemed to have missed the fact that they had unveiled their selection of WH state dinner china.

    I know administrations do this but I missed the announcement until I see photos of their set that will be used in the CAN state dinner
