MNsure, the state health exchange that will begin health insurance options in October, revealed rates and plan options Friday so that consumers can get a head start in examining the plans.
Officials said eligible Minnesota residents will have from two to five provider choices when the system goes live next month. Twin Cities area residents will have five choices; most other counties will have three and all will have at least two options, they said.
The rates are the lowest of all health exchanges announced around the country so far, officials said.
Costs and options depend on where people live, they said.
The five insurance companies approved to offer plans on the MNsure exchange are Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minesota, Health Partners, Medica, PreferredOne and USure.
