MNsure grants reprieve for late enrollment snags

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Officials with Minnesota's health insurance exchange say consumers who make a good faith effort to enroll for coverage by the 11:59 p.m.

March 31st deadline but run into problems and can't complete the process will get a reprieve. MNsure chief Scott Leitz compares it to people who are still waiting in line when polls close on election day _ they still get to vote.

So those who are still ``in line'' when the enrollment deadline hits will still be able to get coverage and avoid the tax penalty. People can fill out a form on the MNsure website, but the exchange will accept other documentation, too.

More than 130,000 people had signed as of Friday.

MNsure has set a goal of 135,000 and plans to issue updated enrollment figures Tuesday.
