About 16,000 Minnesotans who applied for medical assistance through MNsure still aren't getting coverage due to state errors in processing their applications.
The Star Tribune reports the affected customers had problems with their original applications. But letters notifying them of the problems never got sent out - so they didn't know they had to provide additional information.
Department of Human Services Deputy Commissioner Chuck Johnson called it a "serious error."
Meanwhile, Republican Representative Greg Davids of Preston says Governor Mark Dayton should hold Department of Human Services commissioners accountable for their mistakes. In a letter to the Governor Dayton, Davids says the moment has come when Dayton must admit to massive failure in the MNsure system.
