Minnesota uninsured rate drops nearly in half


ST. PAUL -- A new report from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the University of Minnesota finds that Minnesota cut its uninsured rate nearly in half between 2013 and 2015

The rate of Minnesotans without health insurance has now reached an all-time low at 4.3 percent.

The report cites recent health reform efforts and an improved economy as key factors that drove down the state’s uninsured rate, as more than 200,000 Minnesotans – including 35,000 children – gained health insurance coverage between 2013 and 2015.
