Acronym or name of the risk pool: Minnesota comprehensive health association or MCHA.

Regulation establishing risk pool: Minnesota Legislature., under chapter 317, revised in 2005 under chapter 62E.

Funding: The programme receives funds from premium payments by members. It is also received from assessments on health plans. Licensed companies are assessed according to the business they’re receiving in the state.

Plans offered: There are seven different plans on offer. Five PPO plans are offered with varying deductibles. There is a high deductible plan and a Medicare supplemental plan also.

Plan benefit: The five PPO plans offer the same coverage for different levels of deductibles. The options are $500, $1000, $2000, $5000 and $10000. Once the deductibles have been paid, a coinsurance of 20% must be paid for all covered medical benefits. The maximum coinsurance limit is $3000 apart from the $5000 and $10000 deductible plans. In these 2 plans, the deductible is the out of pocket maximum you have to pay. The high deductible health plan is HSA eligible. Once the annual deductibles have been met, 100% coverage is provided for medical expenses. The Medicare supplemental plan is a basic Medicare plan. In this type, the MCHA pays 20% coinsurance after deductibles have been met.
