MNsure survived the legislative session without major changes. Some Republicans wanted to scrap the state's health insurance exchange altogether and some Democrats wanted to make it a state agency.

By some accounts, MNsure's performance has greatly improved since it's rocky 2013 roll out.

MNsure CEO Scott Leitz is leaving his position to work for a health care think tank. He took over the program after its first executive director resigned under fire.

MPR News' Tom Weber talks to Leitz and Brian Beutner, former chair of the MNsure Board of Directors.
