HF 96 (see companion bill SF 49) – MinnesotaStatus: In Process
Year Introduced: 2023
Transitional cost-sharing reduction, premium subsidy, small employer public option, and transitional health care credit established; MinnesotaCare eligibility expanded; premium scale modified; and alternative delivery and payment system recommendations required. This bill establishes the MinnesotaCare public option, for persons with incomes greater than the MinnesotaCare income limit of 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines (FPG), who meet all other MinnesotaCare eligibility criteria. The commissioner of human services is required to submit an implementation
plan to the legislature. Implementation of the public option is effective January 1, 2026, but only if the commissioner of human services certifies to the legislature that implementation of those sections will not result in the loss of federal basic health program funding. The bill also makes other changes to MinnesotaCare,
including requiring a study of a small employer public option and providing eligibility for undocumented noncitizens.
