Project Care connects Minnesotans to health coverage
Project Care is an initiative of the St. Cloud office of Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid that provides free, one-on-one assistance to low-income Minnesotans in finding and enrolling in healthcare coverage in Central Minnesota. The primary goal of Project Care is to identify individuals who are eligible for enrollment in a public healthcare program, to assist them with enrollment, and to help them maintain that coverage without interruption so long as they continue to qualify for coverage. The project is generously funded by grants from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota Foundation and MNsure.
Project Care is staffed by a team of certified navigators who provide assistance in multiple languages, including English, Somali, and Spanish. Navigators help community members find and enroll in the health insurance program that is best for them and their family members including Medical Assistance, Minnesota Care, and private plans with tax credits to help lower the cost of monthly premiums. They can also help with enrollment in Minnesota’s Insulin Affordability Program. Everyone is eligible for help, regardless of income, age, or location. Project Care works with partners across the region to make connecting with a Navigator easier.
