ROCHESTER, Minn.—Individuals and families in southeastern Minnesota are poised to save hundreds of dollars on monthly premiums next year when they purchase health coverage and take advantage of premium tax credits only available through MNsure. At a press conference in Rochester today, MNsure CEO Nate Clark shared the news that tax credits in southeastern Minnesota are going up by $120/month, on average, in 2023 for eligible households in the 10-county area including Dodge, Fillmore, Freeborn, Goodhue, Houston, Mower, Olmsted, Steele, Wabasha and Winona counties.
On average, eligible households in southeastern Minnesota are projected to save $860/month, or about $10,320/year, thanks to the larger tax credits in 2023. In other words, eligible Minnesotans will pay about 10% less on premiums next year than they pay currently, and that can mean big savings for the small business owners, gig workers, farmers and other Minnesotans that MNsure serves.
The Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Office of the Health Insurance Marketplace (OHIM) will release biweekly updates on plan selections through CoverME.gov, Maine’s Health Insurance Marketplace.
Plan selections provide a snapshot of activity by new and returning consumers who have selected a plan for 2023. “Plan selections” become “enrollments” once consumers have paid their first monthly premium to begin insurance. These numbers are subject to change as consumers may modify or cancel plans after their initial selection.
The deadline to select a plan for coverage beginning January 1, 2023 is December 15, 2022. Consumers who select a plan after that date will have coverage beginning February 1, 2023.

1. Total Plan Selections (net): Count of unique individuals who have selected a Plan Year (PY) 2023 Marketplace medical plan. Count includes all new and re-enrolling consumers (defined in Indicators 2 and 3), regardless of whether the consumer has paid the first month premium. Count does not include plans that were canceled or terminated.: 33,367
Completed applications/redeterminations processed through the integrated eligibility system: 6,425
I've never been entirely sure what the "Acquisition Summary" figure refers to, but I've confirmed that it's already included in the larger number.
One minor note: For the past few years, Access Health CT has "front-loaded" their OEP enrollment reports...that is, they auto-renewed all existing enrollees up front, including them in their weekly enrollment numbers, and then reduced the total as current enrollees terminated their renewals. I'm not sure why they're going back to not including them.
Doesn't matte either way; the final enrollment total will be the same either way. Just interesting to a handful of data geeks like myself.
