Renew your Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare to avoid losing coverage. 

Due to a new federal law, special rules by the Minnesota Department of Human Services that kept people enrolled during the COVID-19 emergency are expiring. To keep health care coverage, people must renew their coverage.

MinnesotaCare renewals will be processed October – December 2023. Medical Assistance renewals are being processed now through May 2024, based on the month that you applied.

Watch for your renewal in your mail

A renewal packet with a blue circle and marked “Important information enclosed” should be in your mailbox soon. Make sure your address and contact information are up to date, so your packet finds you.

“It is easy to miss important information in the mail,” Bloomington Public Health Project Coordinator Annika Carlson said. “We want people to avoid losing their health insurance.”
