Updated FAQ: Health Care Reform and Minnesota Nonprofit Employers

A joint release by the Minnesota Budget Project and Minnesota Council of Nonprofits

Updated February 2014

Minnesota’s health insurance landscape has been undergoing some significant improvements, leading to better and more affordable coverage for most Minnesotans. Although this is good news for thousands of the people nonprofits serve, it also raises many questions for nonprofit organizations wondering how these changes will impact them as employers.

Approximately three-fourths of all Minnesota nonprofit employers offer health insurance to their employees.[1] However, smaller nonprofits face significant obstacles in offering health benefits, including cost and administrative challenges. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) creates new opportunities that will benefit small nonprofits that already provide health care insurance and those that want to start. For larger employers, including nonprofits, the ACA brings some new responsibilities for offering health insurance.

This FAQ reviews some commonly asked questions about the changes and choices facing Minnesota’s nonprofits in 2014 and beyond.
