The individual health care markets showed evidence of fiscal resilience, but enrolment fell in 2017.
Minnesota' s individual health insurer business - the place where individuals who do not have employers' or government programs' cover receive health cover - has seen a significant reversal in the trend, with health providers looking for small gains in 2017 after cash losses in 2014, 2015 and 2016. Successive health fund premium rises, a government-funded subsidies programme and the limitation of the enrolment capacities of certain institutions, rather than reduced use of health services, are likely to contribute to this resilience.
Simultaneously, the letter states that decreasing enrollments and changes in the government could further affect the long-term profitability of Minnesota's individual health care markets. Enrolment fell by almost 50 per cent from a high of around 309,000 in 2015 to around 166,000 participants by mid-2017. According to the newsletter, if this decrease stands for healthy individuals who leave the health care system, premium rates could increase further and insurers could decide not to provide cover in some areas of the state.
In 2017, Minnesota took 2017 strides to sustain the economy by building a $300 million programme to buy 25 per cent bonuses for minnesotans that don't get a state grant. In Minnesota, a two-year, $542 million government-sponsored reinsurer programme was also established to compensate insurers that have certain high costs for health claim.
As well as the dwindling enrolment rate, the paper states that the removal of the individual mandates and the German government's support for health plans and short-term policy development all have the promise of further destabilizing Minnesota's individual health care markets, especially in Greater Minnesota.
