Provider Tax Sunset

  • The Bryant Lake Bowl 810 West Lake Street Minneapolis, MN, 55408 United States (map)

Mark Haveman, Executive Director, Minnesota Center for Fiscal Excellence.
Jim Schowalter, Former CEO of the Council of Health Plans

MinnesotaCare is a health insurance program for those earning too much to qualify for Medicade but too little to afford insurance on the private market. For the past 27 years, it has been funded by a 2% assessment on licensed health care professionals. But that tax is set to sunset this year. Whether to renew the tax, replace it with something else, or scrap it all together is one of the hottest and wonkiest debates at the Minnesota Legislature this term. We’ve got two experts and some improv comedy to help make sense of it all.

Cast: Carmen O’Halloran, Kelly Kohlbacher, Jim Robinson, Duck Washington, Brandon Boat, Tane Danger, Dennis Curley.

TICKETS: $12 IN ADVANCE, OR AT THE DOOR WITH A FRINGE BUTTON · $15 AT THE DOOR WITH NO DISCOUNT.

Doors at 6:00pm, Show at 7:00pm

What is the show?

Described “As if C-SPAN were suddenly swarmed by the cast of SNL,” The Theater of Public Policy has garnered national media attention and fans for its unique blend of serious issues and improv comedy.

  • Shows open with a lively conversation with a newsmaker or policy wonk.

  • That conversation inspires a team of Minnesota’s most sharpest improvisers, who create entirely spontaneous sketches based on the interview.

  • The expert guest(s) then answers questions from the audience.

  • The show wraps with one last round of improv from the cast.
