About Minnesota Health Care Programs

Minnesota Health Care Programs are government-funded programs that help individuals and families with limited incomes and persons with disabilities pay for their medical care.

How a health plan can help

Having a health plan is important. Why? It means you and your family can get the care you need to stay healthy. A health plan works with doctors and clinics to help provide you with quality care.

What does a health plan pay for?*

All Minnesota Health Care Programs cover things such as:

  • Yearly checkups
  • Shots
  • Doctor visits when you are sick
  • Prescription drugs
  • Hospital stays
  • Mental health, drug and alcohol treatment services
  • Eye exams and glasses
  • Dental care
  • Emergency care

*Cost sharing and other limits may apply to some services.
