Health marketplace a big change for Minnesotans

Email

ST. PAUL — Sen. Tony Lourey endured 12 hours of debate on what he called the biggest change in the Minnesota health care system in decades.

Senators voted late Thursday 37-28 to approve Lourey’s bill forming a Minnesota Insurance Marketplace, a mostly Web-based system for Minnesotans to buy health care insurance.

“Minnesotans for the first time to be able to shop on an apples-to-apples comparison for health care products,” Lourey said as the marathon debate ended.
