ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota health insurers say they still aren't getting complete information about enrollees in Minnesota's health insurance exchange.
The insurers say the delays could prevent people from having coverage through MNsure starting Jan. 1.
Julie Brunner, executive director of the Minnesota Council of Health Plans, a trade group, sent a letter to state officials Friday. Brunner says information being sent to the health plans has inaccuracies, omissions and in some cases conflicting information about which policy an enrollee is selecting.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports insurers also say that time is growing short to fix the problems.
MNsure says it is aware of the carriers' concerns and is working to address those issues quickly.
The deadline for signing up is Dec. 23.
