Managed Care Regulation

Managed Care Regulation

The Managed Care Systems Section of the Minnesota Department of Health licenses and regulates Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) and County-Based Purchasers (CBPs). Regulation helps to ensure that your health plan company follows all applicable laws and rules governing financial solvency, quality of care, access to services, complaints, appeals and other consumer rights.

The Managed Care Section also reviews Networks, Service Area and Essential Community Provider requirements for MNSure. We also provide information that may assist you in making decisions about your health insurance and your rights as a health plan company member.
