Understanding your premium

People 21 and older who are not pregnant will pay a monthly premium and copays for covered health care benefits. Monthly premiums are determined by your income. We don't collect your premium. You'll pay MinnesotaCare directly.

Pay your premium to MinnesotaCare

Understanding your copays

A copay is an amount that you pay your provider when you get care. Copay amounts are listed below.

You pay your copay directly to your provider. Many providers have you pay your copay when you arrive for your appointment. If you get non-emergency care at a hospital emergency room, they may bill you later.

If you can't pay your copay, the provider must still give you care. That's true even if you haven't paid your copay to that provider in the past or if you have other debts to that provider. The provider may still bill you for the unpaid copays.

Copay Amounts


Non-preventive visits with a network provider*


  • Sore throat
  • Diabetes checkup
  • High fever
  • Sore back
  • Other illnesses or injuries




Preventive visits with a network provider

American Indians can continue to use tribal and Indian Health Services (IHS) clinics. We will not require prior approval or impose any conditions for you to get services at these clinics. For elders age 65 years and older this includes Elderly Waiver (EW) services accessed through the tribe. If a doctor or other provider in a tribal or IHS clinic refers you to a provider in our network, we will not require you to see your primary care provider prior to the referral.
