To: Legislative Leadership & Members of Health and Human Services Committees

We, the undersigned 150+ Minnesota nonprofit organizations, oppose proposals House File 3722 and Senate File 3219, which would implement burdensome reporting requirements on Minnesotans receiving health coverage through Medical Assistance, Minnesota’s Medicaid program.

Medical Assistance is a pillar of Minnesota’s nation-leading system of care, providing access to health care for over a million Minnesotans. It supports rural economies, healthy communities, and the dignity of care for Minnesotans when we need it most.

Minnesotans value work, including Minnesotans who receive health care through Medical Assistance. However, the primary outcome of these new barriers will be fewer Minnesotans with health care, returning to the days of delayed treatment for illnesses and uncompensated care through emergency rooms.

Medicaid reporting requirements are costly, complex, bureaucratic, and will have unintended consequences for state and local government, health care providers, and Minnesotans receiving coverage from Medical Assistance in all corners of the state.

Minnesotans who receive health care through Medical Assistance often have significant obstacles to employment that are not erased by taking away their health care. Many people who have disabilities, mental illness, chronic conditions and substance use disorders face serious challenges clearing the hurdles to prove their exemption. Additionally, the majority of adults on Medical Assistance are working, and yet may still see their coverage terminated due to paperwork issues or other complications, beginning a spiral of missed care and work.

The cost, complexity, and unintended consequences of this proposal is not a fit for Minnesota. We respectfully ask that you join us in our opposition to House File 3722 and Senate File 3219, and ensure Minnesotans continue receiving access to the care they need.
