The MNsure website:
* Allows you to comparison-shop for insurance online from health plans that meet baseline standards

One of the provisions of health reform requires that new health insurance plans must include a minimum set of health care services and products, presented in a way so that you can compare plans to each other and understand what the plans will cost. The minimum set is commonly called Essential Health Benefits and it applies to plans within exchanges and also outside of exchanges. The Minnesota Department of Commerce is responsible for setting the standard benchmark plan for the state.
