MNsure open enrollment deadline looms

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- A deadline of 11:59 p.m. is looming for Minnesotans to enroll for health insurance for 2014 though the state's online marketplace.

MNsure has more than 50 sign-up events scheduled across the state Monday. As of Friday, more than 152,000 Minnesotans had enrolled in private insurance plans or qualified for government-subsidized public plans.

Most people who fail to enroll will have to wait for the next open enrollment period to open this fall. And they face federal tax penalties under the federal Affordable Care Act, which makes health insurance mandatory. However, people eligible for Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare, members of American Indian tribes and small businesses can still enroll year-round.

MNsure will grant reprieves for people who make a good-faith effort to enroll but can't complete the process before the deadline.
