Parts 7700.0100 to 7700.0105 govern the administration of MNsure eligibility appeals. Parts 7700.0100 to 7700.0105 must be read in conjunction with the federal Affordable Care Act, Public Law 111-148; Code of Federal Regulations, title 45, part 155; and Minnesota Statutes, chapter 62V; and sections 256.045 and 256.0451.
Although MNsure offers a unique single marketplace for consumers to compare several health insurance coverage options, including coverage under medical assistance and MinnesotaCare, appeals rights and processes for medical assistance and MinnesotaCare are found in applicable federal or state statute or rule, including, but not limited to, parts 9505.0130, 9505.5105, 9505.0545, and 9506.0070, and Minnesota Statutes, sections 256.045, 256.0451, and 256L.10. Nothing in these rules should be construed to supersede, abridge, or in any way limit the appeal rights of appellants contesting issues covered or not covered under these rules that are available under applicable federal or state statute or rule, including, but not limited to, parts 9505.0130, 9505.5105, 9505.0545, and 9506.0070, and Minnesota Statutes, sections 256.045, 256.0451, and 256L.10. However, nothing in these rules prevent any MNsure consumer from filing appeals through MNsure.
Nothing in these rules limits or supersedes the ability of the commissioners of commerce and health to conduct investigations or facilitate appeals as authorized by laws administered by the Departments of Commerce and Health.
