Evaluation of Proposed Health Coverage Mandates
Minnesota state law requires the Department of Commerce to evaluate the potential impacts of legislative proposals that would require health insurers to add or increase coverage for certain conditions, diseases, or other health care needs. Evaluations focus on fiscal, economic, and public health impacts of proposed legislation.
As part of each year's evaluation process, Commerce solicits input from health care professionals, patient advocates, health insurers, and the public. Comment themes are summarized in evaluation reports submitted each year to the Minnesota Legislature, known as 62J reports.
