MNSure Open Enrollment Begins Next Week

Dear students,

Beginning Monday, November 1, the open enrollment period begins for low or no cost health insurance through the Minnesota Marketplace (MNSure).

For those students who purchased the MCAD health insurance plan, you may be eligible to receive lower cost healthcare or no cost healthcare (MinnesotaCare or Medical Assistance) through the Marketplace.

If you purchased the MCAD health plan and are approved for lower cost healthcare through the state, we may still be able to cancel and refund your MCAD health insurance plan entirely or issue you a prorated refund, less a $75 administrative fee.

You will need to provide proof of coverage in order to cancel your MCAD health insurance plan.

When comparing the cost of health insurance plans, keep in mind that your MCAD student health insurance plan coverage period is from 8/20/2021 - 8/19/2022 for an average monthly premium of $255.75.

For more information, visit MNSure's general FAQ page or contact them directly.


You can sign up for 2022 private health and dental insurance through MNsure starting next Monday, November 1. Are you ready? Here are some simple steps you can take now.

  • Preview 2022 health and dental plans. Use our online plan comparison tool to look at your options and estimate savings.
  • Note: If you’ve h aven’t qualified for tax credits to lower your premiums before, check again. More savings are available than ever before! And more Minnesotans are eligible for discounts to lower their monthly premiums in 2022.
  • Want help enrolling? Make an appointment to get free help from a MNsure-certified broker or navigator.
  • If you already have a MNsure online account, make sure it’s up to date and you are ready to log in. If you need to reset your user name or password, review these instructions. And report any important household changes to us.

Open enrollment runs November 1, 2021, to January 15, 2022.

Note: This open enrollment does not apply to MinnesotaCare or Medical Assistance. If you qualify for one of those programs, or are a member of a federally recognized American Indian tribe, you can enroll year-round.

P.S. Make sure your friends and family know it’s almost time to enroll in 2022 coverage -- please forward this email!
