Health insurance companies in Minnesota are raising monthly premiums by an average of more than 50% in 2017 for people who buy individual health insurance plans.
This group includes many farmers, self-employed people, small businesses and people working jobs that don’t provide health coverage – about 250,000 Minnesotans. Healthcare costs are rising for everyone, but those buying individual plans are at the center of the growing healthcare crisis.
