Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota is a PPO option and will be dropped as an option for the state of Minnesota. In addition, HealthPartners is still evaluating if they should stay in the exchange. Because of this, the state sent out a request for additional carriers to possibly join the exchange in late August. This is very late in the year for such a call, but Minnesota appears to be in a state of flux.
