HF 2705 (see companion bill SF 2719) – Minnesota

Status: In Process
Year Introduced: 2023

The 2020 Legislature established two programs to provide assistance to individuals who cannot afford the cost of insulin. The urgent need program provides eligible individuals with a 30-day supply and the co-payment cannot exceed $35. The continuing need program provides eligible individuals with a 90- day supply of insulin and the copayment cannot exceed $50. Both programs require individuals to indicate Minnesota residency by presenting a valid Minnesota identification card, driver’s license or permit, or a Tribal identification card. This bill adds an individual tax identification number (ITIN) to the list of valid identification documents. An ITIN is a document created by the Internal Revenue Service to allow foreign nationals and other individuals, including undocumented persons, who are not eligible for a Social Security number, to file taxes.
