MN Sure Still Working Out Major Kinks

Posted: Updated:
About 16 thousand Minnesotans who applied for medical assistance through MN Sure, are still without health insurance.

The Star Tribune reported that some of the people could be caught in limbo for as long as six months.

State officials said Wednesdays that letters notifying people of problems with their original insurance applications never got sent out. This means they didn't know they still had to provide important information before they could get coverage. 

Officials say that the problems with mailing letters were first discovered in January and were believed to be resolved. However the officials say the agency didn't have the right management in place to continue catching issues.
