Get the facts on Minnesota’s state health coverage programs with the new /dhs/medicaid-matters/index.jspMedicaid Matters and MinnesotaCare Matters data dashboards. Use the dashboards to get data on Medicaid (called Medical Assistance in Minnesota) and MinnesotaCare enrollees, spending, providers and dental care.
These easy-to-navigate tools let you dig in and analyze information on the health insurance programs that serve one in five Minnesotans. The goal of the tools: to provide greater transparency and help inform the conversation about health care coverage and long-term care in our state.
Medicaid and MinnesotaCare serve as a lifeline for many providers in Greater Minnesota and contribute significantly to the state’s health care system, supporting public health infrastructure, hospitals, mental health centers, at-home care, community clinics, nursing homes, physicians and many other health professionals by reducing the number of Minnesotans that go without health care coverage. Medicaid — not Medicare — is the primary source of coverage for people who need long-term care services.
