Emergency Bill Minnesota COVID-19 HF 3980, SF 4334 for 200 million dollars to clinic and hospital systems guarantees any Minnesota resident testing and care, including intensive care, if the clinic and hospital system accept the state grant money. The health care systems were given the date of April 1, 2020, to apply for this grant. As quoted by Senator John Marty, “With the coronavirus crisis, we finally have our first single-payer healthcare in Minnesota – but it’s only for COVID-19. It’s time we pass single-payer for all healthcare needs, not just this one condition!”
A listing of the health care systems who accepted the grants for COVID-19 and will provide care to anyone with this diagnosis will be available soon. We will publish this information as soon as we have the information.
Any Minnesota resident can receive care at one of the Federal Qualified Health Care Clinics. The listing for these clinics in the state of Minnesota are linked and listed below.
