On Monday, March 4, the Minnesota House of Representatives passed a bill that will create a state health insurance exchange where Minnesotans can compare and purchase health insurance coverage.
Representative Jay McNamar (DFL - Elbow Lake) voted in favor of creating the exchange, which will serve approximately 1.2 million people in the state.
According to McNamar, the bill will help reduce health care costs by helping Minnesotans get preventative care.
