ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Portico Healthnet, a nonprofit agency working to reduce the number of people without coverage for health care services, has been named as a partner by the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) in its recently announced effort to expand health care access to uninsured Minnesotans.
