In October 2011, Governor Mark Dayton signed an order creating the Health Reform Task Force to propose strategies for improving the overall health care of the state. Then in March 2013, Minnesota legislature enacted the creation of the Minnesota Insurance Marketplace. With its implementation, Minnesotans will be able to compare health insurance options based on cost, quality, and consumer satisfaction.
In December 2011, the Health Reform Task Force created Work Groups, whose tasks included evaluating options for the EHB plan. The Task Force reviewed the Minnesota-based benchmark options under federal guidance and found that the differences between the options were not significant. As a result, Minnesota chose not to submit a recommendation, and the state’s benchmark EHB plan defaulted to the largest small-group plan in the state, Blue Cross Blue Shield Major Medical.
The state-run Minnesota Insurance Marketplace defaulted its benchmark essential health benefits plan to Blue Cross Blue Shield Major Medical, the largest small-group plan in Minnesota.
