By policy, MCAD students must have health insurance in place during enrollment. As such, most of you have health insurance in place at this time. Nevertheless, if you or anyone you know is in need of health insurance, MNSure is one option provided by the State of Minnesota to help secure coverage. In an effort to help protect people during the likely expansion of Coronavirus, MNSure has opened a special enrollment period through April 21. Please share this information.
If you have questions about your MCAD Student Health insurance policy, feel free to contact Student Affairs.

Uninsured Minnesotans Can Enroll Now
Special enrollment period available through April 21
If you are uninsured right now, you can get covered through MNsure. Apply on MNsure.org by April 21.
In response to the potential growth of coronavirus (COVID-19) cases, MNsure is offering a special enrollment period to eligible Minnesotans.
Coverage will start Wednesday, April 1. (If you enroll after April 1 and by 11:59 p.m. on April 21, your coverage will have a retroactive start date of April 1.)
Other enrollment options:
- Those who qualify for Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare (programs for Minnesotans with low income) can enroll year-round.
- Members of federally recognized American Indian tribes can enroll year-round.
- Minnesotans who experience another qualifying life event (such as marriage, birth of a child or a move) can enroll in a private plan through a special enrollment period.
If you are a currently enrolled MNsure customer, you cannot use this special enrollment period to change plans. To change plans, you must have a qualifying life event.
