DULUTH -- One out of five calls from the public for help with Minnesota’s new online health insurance marketplace is coming from the 218 area code, the program’s director announced Wednesday.
The sprawling but relatively sparsely populated region, which includes Duluth and all of northern Minnesota, is producing more calls than any other area code in the state, said April Todd-Malmlov, executive director of MNsure.
