How do I know the amount of my MinnesotaCare premium?
The MinnesotaCare Premium EstimatorTable can help you estimate your premium amount. The exact amount depends on your income, family size and number of people covered. After coverage is approved, you will get a bill in the mail. It will tell you how much you must pay.

You can call MinnesotaCare to find out the amount and due date of your next premium:

  • 651-297-3862 (Twin Cities metro area)
  • 800-657-3672 (outside the Twin Cities)
  • TTY: 800-627-3529 or 711

  • Will my coverage start before I pay my premium?
    If you must pay a premium, your coverage will not start until your premium is paid. Usually coverage starts the first day of the month after we get your premium payment.

    How do I pay my premium?
    You can pay:

  • By mail
    Allow enough time for your premium to arrive by the due date on your bill. Do not mail cash. Write your case number on your check or money order and mail it with the payment stub from your premium notice to:
  • MinnesotaCare

    St. Paul, MN 55164-0834

  • In person
    Pay your premium at the MinnesotaCare office in downtown St. Paul. You may pay by cash, check or money order. If you pay by cash, you must have the exact amount.
