Minnesota Hospital Association

Policy & Advocacy

Health Care Reform

The Minnesota Hospital Association is committed to keeping our members informed about federal and state health care policies and the impact they may have on hospitals and patients.

On behalf of our hospital and health system members, MHA places a priority on preserving health care coverage for low-income Minnesotans. In addition, we want Minnesotans to have meaningful insurance coverage for all essential health care services. We cannot support a return to a system that increases our rate of uninsured; re-creates a reliance on the emergency room; and discourages preventive care, mental health care, routine screenings and other health care throughout a person’s lifetime. 


The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) created a website that regularly shares analyses of the budget and coverage implications of legislative proposals and administrative actions relating to health care policy. Visit the website to access issue briefs, news updates and policy analyses.
