Minnesota Help is Available for Undocumented Struggling to Pay for Insulin
MNsure, the state’s official health insurance Marketplace, announced that help is available for undocumented Minnesotans struggling to pay for insulin. Minnesotans can now use an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) as an accepted form of identification for the Minnesota Insulin Safety Net Program. This change provides a pathway to access the program for those who do not have a valid Minnesota identification card, driver’s license or permit, or tribal-issued identification. For minors under the age of 18 who need help affording insulin, a parent or legal guardian can use an ITIN as an accepted form of identification.
