The MinnesotaCare Premium Estimator Table (PDF) 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 exactly how much you must pay.
Online at https://payments.dhs.state.mn.us Select MinnesotaCare from the menu. You will need your case number, the invoice number and the amount of your premium. You can pay by credit card (VISA or MasterCard) or by check.
Allow enough time for your payment to arrive by the due date on your bill. You can pay by check or money order. Do not mail cash.
Write your case number on your check or money order, and mail it with your check or money order with the payment stub from your bill to this address:
PO Box 64834
St. Paul, MN 55164-0834
You will have coverage for one more month if you do not pay your premium. That is a grace month. You must pay your monthly premium by noon on the last working day of the grace month to avoid a gap in coverage. Your coverage will end if you do not pay your premium by noon on the last working day of the grace month.
You must pay the grace month premium and a premium for a future month to get coverage again. This means you must pay for two months of premiums to restart coverage. Your coverage starts again on the first day of the month after we get the total amount due. We will forgive your unpaid grace month premium if you are still not covered when we bill you for the fourth month after the grace month. The forgiven grace month premium will no longer appear on your MinnesotaCare premium bills once it is forgiven. You must pay for a future month of coverage to restart your coverage after your grace month premium is forgiven.
