Minnesota DHS Cancels Unpaid MinnesotaCare Premiums and Temporarily Waives Premiums for all Enrollees

The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) has cancelled unpaid MinnesotaCare (the state’s Basic Health Program) premiums and will waive premiums for May 2023 through June 2024 coverage for all enrollees. The state passed legislation in 2021 that prevents DHS from collecting unpaid MinnesotaCare premiums that accrued during the public health emergency. Additionally, the 2023 Minnesota legislature passed a law that temporarily waives MinnesotaCare premiums for all enrollees for coverage from May 2023 through June 2024.
