Minnesota’s uninsured rate hit historic low in 2021 but racial disparities increased

This blog analyzes survey results from the 2021 Minnesota Health Access Survey (MNHA) – a biennial state-based population survey that collects information on how many people in Minnesota have health insurance and how easy it is for them to get health care.

Key findings from the survey showed mixed results, with the statewide uninsured rate dropping to its lowest-ever rate (4.0%) and periodic uninsurance dropping significantly (2.9% from 4.8%). However, the survey also found that disparities in coverage increased when examined by race and ethnicity, with uninsured rates among American Indians and people of color rising to 10.2%.
