When Planned Parenthood sent Gayle a postcard inviting her to learn about the Affordable Care Act, she dismissed it.  After working for the same company for over 40 years, Gayle was confident she wouldn’t need to worry about insurance until she retired.  But when Gayle was laid off suddenly, she was glad Planned Parenthood reached out. 

At first, Gayle was worried that she might have to choose between healthcare and groceries to feed her son. But after a consultation with a MNsure Navigator, Gayle felt confident she could find quality health insurance that wouldn’t break her budget.

Today Gayle is thrilled with her coverage. While the insurance at her previous job required a $150 monthly contribution and had a $1,500 deductible, Gayle’s current plan offers comprehensive coverage without a monthly premium. Gayle’s only out of pocket healthcare expenses are co-pays at the doctor’s office, costs Gayle describes as “minimal.” 

“Sometimes I still pinch myself,” Gayle says about her MNsure plan. “I’m looking for work. And maybe a company will have their own insurance. But for right now, it’s a godsend.”
