Minnesota health plans record a break-even year
Minneapolis Star Tribune, April 22, 2009
The health plans that cover most Minnesotans broke even last year after three years of operating losses and look poised for a strong 2009. Enrollment in public programs, in particular Medical Assistance, grew sharply in a weak economy. So did enrollment in plans with health savings accounts. Overall enrollment was up 2.6% to 4.3 million, according to the Minnesota Council of Health Plans, which released its annual report on health plan financial results.
