SHADAC Analysis Finds 40.6% Drop in Minnesota's Uninsured during First ACA Open Enrollment
June 11, 2014: A new SHADAC report finds that between September 30, 2013, and May 1, 2014, the number of uninsured Minnesotans fell by 180,500, or 40.6%, from 445,000 (8.2% of the population) to about 264,500 (4.9% of the population).
SHADAC produced the report at the request of Minnesota's State-Based Health Insurance Marketplace, MNsure. Researchers compiled data from a variety of sources to analyze, at an aggregate level, the shifts in health insurance coverage that have taken place in Minnesota since the fall of 2013.
To our knowledge this report is the first assessment of early state-level impacts of the ACA on health insurance coverage.
