MinnesotaCare is a health care program that pays for medical services for adults and children in Minnesota who don't have affordable health insurance. MinnesotaCare helps people get the care they need to be healthy. This includes coverage for preventive care, physician services, and rehabilitation services.

To qualify for MinnesotaCare, you must meet income and other eligibility requirements. (For more information, look below under "How to enroll.") MinnesotaCare members pay a monthly premium for health coverage. This premium amount depends on your family's income.

UCare partners with the Minnesota Department of Human Services to offer MinnesotaCare in 72 counties in Minnesota.
