Continuing Research Support for the West Central Minnesota Healthcare Purchasing Alliance (WCHPA)
The WCHPA is continuing to work with the area employers, healthcare providers, insurance brokers, and area legislators to improve the health insurance options available in our rural region. We have worked with area legislators to offer legislation to make Minnesota Care better suited for rural people. We have also been advocating changes in law to facilitate our offering a health insurance product for those ineligible for Minnesota Care. The WCHPA also worked to gather public input through a survey and public forums.
