Health insurance enrollment is complicated, and Minnesotans want in-person help to complete the process. With close to 1,000 community-based enrollment assistance partners across the state, MNsure needed a way, beyond a simple directory, to let Minnesotans know where free, in-person help and information was in their communities. That’s where Grassroots Solutions (GRS) and the website Clockwork recently launched, MNsureEvents.org, come in.
MNsureEvents.org supports these efforts as an event listing site that MNsure “assisters” can use to publicize events and enrollment opportunities, providing a centralized tool for organizations that might not have the resources or expertise to promote these on their own. Consumers can search for events in their area, submit RSVPs and receive notification reminders when the event date approaches. Ultimately, the site infrastructure and design helps its range of users — from consumers to assisters to MNsure admins — succeed.
