Audit: MNsure errors may top $200 million

Report says that mistakes by software, workers could mean thousands were enrolled in ineligible plans


ST. PAUL -- More than 80,000 Minnesotans enrolled in public health programs for which they weren’t eligible last year, an estimated cost to taxpayers of hundreds of millions of dollars.

The expensive problem was caused partly by miscommunication and poor training at the Department of Human Services, but the audit that uncovered the errors said software issues are primarily to blame.

Republicans said the report vindicated their claims that DHS could do more to crack down on waste, fraud and abuse — and that the MNsure-based software DHS uses is fatally flawed.
