Otsego, MN – Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) released the below statement following the announcement of Medica reaching the cap on their enrollment:

“This morning, Minnesotans looking to purchase insurance through MNsure hit yet another snag in their attempts to get health care coverage. Just ten days after open enrollment began, Medica has already hit their enrollment cap.

“The Affordable Care Act was supposed to reduce cost and increase access, yet today Minnesotans are facing the 4th highest premium increases and many Minnesotans only have one plan to ‘choose’ from. We cannot afford to simply put a bandaid on the failures of this horrendous law while Minnesota families continue to suffer. It is imperative that we work toward real solutions that put the patient first.”
