*Minnesota is only one of two states that seizes individual tax refunds on behalf of private healthcare companies like Essentia. Healthcare companies do not need a court judgement or order before using this service. The State of Minnesota earns a $15 fee for every collection and does not verify the validity of the claim before seizing a refund.
