$41M grant to help fund MNsure operations

Minnesota's new online insurance marketplace has received $41 million in additional federal funds to fund operations through next year.

MNsure will use the new grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for general operations, to support IT and related systems and security training. It also will allow MNsure to study quality rating systems and fund consumer satisfaction surveys through 2014.

To date, Mnsure has received more than $150 million from the federal government to design and operate the state-based health insurance exchange.
