Minnesota Comprehensive Health Association (MCHA) is the state’s high risk pool that provides health insurance coverage to individuals as a plan of last resort when they cannot get coverage in private markets.
In light of the 2014 implementation of the Affordable Care Act, the Commerce Department has announced key information regarding the process for assessing the need for, and developing a transition plan for the Minnesota Comprehensive Health Association (MCHA), including a FAQ, timeline, and goals. The Minnesota Insurance Marketplace Act, which passed this legislative session, tasked the Commerce Department to determine the need for, and implement a phase-out and eventual appropriate termination of coverage provided by MCHA.
