Follow-up Review:
MinnesotaCare Eligibility Determination

April 12, 2007

This follow-up to OLA’s 2003 report on MinnesotaCare assessed actions by the Minnesota Department of Human Services to address problems with the accuracy of MinnesotaCare eligibility determinations. In spite of efforts to improve, the follow-up review found that serious problems with accuracy persist. A key solution to these problems—an automated eligibility system called "HealthMatch"—holds promise but is significantly behind schedule. The report recommends that the department take interim actions to improve eligibility determination while waiting for HealthMatch to be implemented.
