SF 3907 (see companion bill HF 4095)

This bill would establish the MinnesotaCare Public Option, allowing Minnesotans to enroll in the program to take advantage of lower out-of-pocket costs and access to a strong network of providers.

Currently, MinnesotaCare is only available to persons with low income, but the bill would expand MinnesotaCare to all persons who meet all other current eligibility requirements.
