Obamacare MinnesotaThe number of uninsured Minnesotans has fallen by nearly 41 percent since September, largely due to the federal Affordable Care Act, University of Minnesota researchers said Wednesday.

About 180,000 Minnesotans gained health insurance as a result of the law, mainly through enrollments in government-sponsored coverage such as Medical Assistance and MinnesotaCare, according to the university's State Health Access Data Assistance Center. The sign-ups dropped the rate of uninsured Minnesotans from 8.2 percent to 4.9 percent.

The study findings also suggest employers didn't dump their health plans and force workers to buy their own.

Most Minnesotans get their insurance through work. The study found the number of people in employer-sponsored plans declined by only about 6,000, a decline of two tenths of 1 percent.

Coverage also increased in the private health insurance market. The number of people buying their own plan jumped about 12 percent.
