Health Care Reform:

Health Insurance & Affordable Care Act

In Minn., 3,700 Obamacare Applications Under Way


Some people were pleasantly surprised because they really didn’t expect MNsure to work.

James Albrecht, a community health worker at Portico Healthnet, a nonprofit that helps Minnesotans find health coverage, hasn’t enrolled anyone on MNsure yet. But he said the system has surpassed his expectations anyway.

“I expected to have more tech problems. I was thinking that we’d get too many people using the system and that the system would crash and we’d be down for a couple of weeks,” Albrecht said. “So I’m actually surprised that it’s working as effectively as it is.”
