Annual health plan selection for 2018

If you are a Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP) member who gets health care through a health plan, you have the chance to choose a new plan each fall, for the coming year, if more than one option is available in your area. 

The period for annual health plan selection (AHPS) for 2018 is from September 18 through December 1, 2017. 

The plans available for 2018 are the same as for 2017.
