Health insurance cut-off notices rattle disabled


Hundreds of Minnesotans with disabilities received cancellation notices this month for their state-funded health insurance, a result of confusion over a change in the due date for their premiums.

County social workers say they have been flooded with panicked calls from people with mental illnesses and intellectual disabilities who received cancellation notices after missing their November premium payments.

More than 2,300 people statewide have received cancellation notices, including nearly 400 people in Hennepin County alone.
