Minnesota Health Care Programs Application


Eligibility for Minnesota Health Care Programs is now determined by MnSure, Minnesota’s new online insurance exchange that was established by the Affordable Care Act.  MnSure is a private/public partnership that is governed by a board of directors that is appointed by the Governor of Minnesota.  For more information on MnSure, click here.

Applying online using the MnSure website is the recommended way for applying for a Minnesota Health Care Program (Medical Assistance, MinnesotaCare and Advanced Premium Tax Credits). Applying online is recommended because most of your information can be electronically verified and you can get an immediate eligibility determination. However, there is a paper application available.

Assistance in applying for health care programs is available. Learn more about how you can get help with the MnSure application from a navigator/in-person assister (See the final question, Question 24).
