afternoon saying “MNsure is a marketplace where insurers price their products to compete for business A year ago PreferredOne chose to offer its coverage at rates well below other plans on MNsure and gained significant market share from doing so The question now is whether PreferredOne can afford to continue to offer such low rates If not its continued participation in MNsure would distort the Exchange’s average rates which last year were the lowest in the nation”Several messages left with PreferredOne seeking details about its decision to bow out were not returned but the Golden Valley-based company told KSTP-TV its MNsure business was sucking up too many administrative resources and that MNsure wasn’t able to adequately verify information from enrolleesPreferredOne has said in the past that it had to hire about 25 temporary workers to verify coverage details because the data coming from MNsure wasn’t complete that enrollment and payment data could be inaccurate when users had trouble with the MNsure web site and that the company had had trouble with the MNsure system dropping dependents from policiesAs of July 24118 people were enrolled with PreferredOne according to MNsure That’s 53 percent of MNsure’s total enrollment in private health plansAnyone currently in a PreferredOne plan will retain it through 2014 officials saidUnder state law they have the right to stay with their plan in 2015 as well but not necessarily at the same price Since PreferredOne will no longer be offered through MNsure its enrollees wouldn’t be eligible for financial assistance through federal tax credits MNsure will be contacting everyone currently enrolled in PreferredOne in early October to discuss options officials said Open enrollment starts Nov 15Four other carriers are offering insurance through MNsure and MNsure CEO Scott Leitz said Tuesday “we have no indication that they won’t be staying in”A spokesman for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota which has 24 percent of the MNsure private-plan enrollment said Tuesday the company will continue to offer insurance through the exchange in 2015 UCare also said it will be back as wellRoger Feldman an economist and professor at the University of Minnesota said PreferredOne’s exit raises concerns in Minnesota even as it runs counter to national trends“We’ve been wondering whether premiums for 2015 were going to go up dramatically and whether plans were going to leave” Feldman said “That doesn’t seem to be happening nationwide”But in Minnesota “I am concerned about the degree of competition in the MNSure exchange” Feldman added “I want to have as many plans in there competing as vigorously as we can”Many experts viewed PreferredOne’s extra-low 2014 rates as not sustainable so they’re not shocked the company is backing out“It’s a pretty big deal but not wholly unexpected” said Stephen Parente director of the U’s Medical Leadership Institute “They had the lowest premiums in the nation and many thought — myself included — they may have gambled too low hoping for a surge in enrollment”Parente added “Unfortunately it will be disruptive for those who enrolled with them and now need to find alternatives”Feldman notes that PreferredOne was courting only a fraction of the MnSure market: those in private health plans“Of the 325000 enrollees in MNSure only 54000 are in a qualified health plan — that is a private health plan” Feldman said “The others are in public health plans … I can see them having some justification for saying ‘It’s not worth our time we get just a share of a small share’”But the company’s exit is still likely to have an impact Feldman said For one thing it will lead to higher government costs“The government contribution to help people buy plans is based on the second-lowest silver plan bid” Feldman said “With PreferredOne no longer in the market it means the second-lowest silver plan bid will be higher”He added “For most people there’s a cap on how much they’re going to pay as a percentage of their income So the person won’t pay more but the government is going to pay more to give them their tax credit”MNsure CEO Leitz said PreferredOne’s departure is not a signal the exchange is unsustainable “Health plans change each year and I think what this says about the marketplace created by MNsure is that it’s working as it should” Leitz saidSevering ties was a “business decision” for PreferredOne said Brian Beutner MNsure’s board chair “They offered the lowest rates and the broadest networks offered last year I can understand how that might impact them” Beutner saidMNsure is a marketplace said state Rep Joe Atkins DFL-Inver Grove Heights in a statement “It is no different than Target or Cub Foods in that some products will come and go Preferred One may be leaving but MNsure still has many great products” he saidRepublican lawmakers saw it differentlyPreferredOne’s basic message is “that this model this structure cannot work” said Senate Minority Leader David Hann a Republican from Eden Prairie “I think people need to recognize that and say well if this model doesn’t work what was fundamentally wrong with the model that we had in Minnesota before and maybe there are some things that we were doing that might be worth revisiting”DFLers pushed to create MNsure last year as a way of implementing the federal Affordable Care Act which requires almost all Americans to have health insurance The exchange features a website where people can buy commercial coverage and learn if they qualify for federal subsidies or government health insurance programsThe state Commerce Department released a statement Tuesday saying it will closely monitor PreferredOne’s service to its existing and future customers

in private and public plans Officials said the number of uninsured Minnesotans decreased 40 percent to a record low between last fall and this springFrederick Melo and Christopher Snowbeck contributed to this report The Pioneer Press is a media partner with Forum News ServiceThe university will reduce its budget by $600000 in fiscal year 2019 which begins July 1 UMD Chancellor Lendley Black announced Thursday Jan 11 in employee town hall meetingsBeginning with 2020 UMD is planning to make cuts that could range from an estimated $1 million to $15 million but those amounts could fluctuate depending on revenues and expenses If UMD’s budget model is realized through 2023 the university would be in the black in five years he said"We’re not broke We are paying our bills" Black told the Duluth News Tribune Thursday "We do have some fairly large carry-over funds that carry over from one fiscal year to the next We also continue to get considerable assistance from the Twin Cities from the system in a variety of ways It’s not a dire situation but it is a serious situation that we have to resolve"The cuts for 2019 are expected to be finalized in February and will occur across all major areas — academic affairs student life finance and operations and the chancellor’s unit — although the biggest cuts are expected to be made in academic affairs said Fernando Delgado the executive vice chancellor for academic affairs at UMDEach year’s cuts are less than 1 percent of UMD’s annual budget presuming that the university doesn’t receive a significant revenue increase from student tuition or state funding Delgado saidThe reductions will have an impact he said but it’s a small amount considering UMD’s roughly $155 million operating budget"I think we have the capacity to make some really tough decisions and at the same time make them in the mind that we can reallocate resources to shore up areas that are most critical and make the most impact on attracting and retaining students" Delgado saidUMD’s budget shortfall is expected to increase from $32 million this year to $54 million in 2019 Black said the increase is due to UMD receiving a one-time state allocation totaling $878000 this year that won’t be in next year’s budget Additionally the budget for next year assumes an increase of 2 percent in salaries for faculty and staff but that amount hasn’t been finalizedPart of the answer lies in retaining more students If UMD retains 5 percent more students annually that would result in about 100 more students enrolling in the university each year Delgado said UMD is "not going to stop innovating during this period" and will add programs if needed Black said It’s not about only making cuts but rather repositioning and reallocating based on UMD’s strengths The University of Minnesota has also provided UMD with $2 million for new recurring expenses that include more mental health counselors and enrollment management initiativesBlack said he feels "reasonably confident" that UMD has a solid plan and time to solve it noting the new chemistry building being constructed and enrollment growth as good things happening on campusUMD’s annual shortfall began several years ago At one point it was $94 million due to an enrollment decline that occurred at the same time as a decrease in UMD’s state funding allocation"Ever since then we’ve been continuing to address the problem and we have made good progress" Black saidWhile the situation isn’t dire he said the budget shortfall puts a "shadow" over the universityBlack said his focus is positioning UMD for the future In order to thrive in a competitive higher education environment UMD needs to be financially healthy he said Unfortunately, but it won’t disrupt the health exhange’s continued functioning.
