Minnesota Care

September 8, 2012

Sen. Linda Berglin and Rep. Lee Greenfield  discuss Minnesota Care (MNCare), a subsidized health care program for people who live in Minnesota and do not have access to health insurance. MNCare was created in 1992 by the Minnesota Legislature (a part of the Grand Consensus) and is administered by the Minnesota Department of Human Services. It is funded by member premiums, the State of Minnesota, and a tax on health care providers. MNCare provides an alternative to private market plans for low income residents of MN.

A long-time legislator, Sen. Berglin is now Hennepin Countys Health Policy Program Manager.  Rep. Greenfield served 21 years in the Minnesota House, representing Minneapolis.
