The open enrollment period is underway for the member-owned health plan in Minnesota called 40 Square Cooperative Solutions. Executive Director Char Vrieze sees a need for this option. “If you’re in the agriculture industry and you don’t have health insurance, it can be detrimental to your operation.” As a cooperative, farmers and agribusiness members have a vote in the programs available through 40 Square. The enrollment period is in place through December 19. “We encourage you to sign up and/or see your local agent to learn about the 40 Square options.” Informational meetings are also taking place statewide.
