State dropping 64,000 from Medical Assistance and MinnesotaCare programs


Public health insurance enrollees and their advisers were voicing frustration Wednesday over a year-end renewal process for people with state-sponsored coverage.

Earlier this week, the state Department of Human Services (DHS) informed lawmakers about renewals in the Medical Assistance and MinnesotaCare programs that will drop about 64,000 people from coverage next month, mostly for failure to submit paperwork.

In another 6,100 cases, people with MinnesotaCare coverage received cutoff notices even though they submitted the required information on time, state officials told the Star Tribune on Wednesday evening.
