To receive your highest level of benefits, visit providers—including specialists and hospitals—who are in the Park Nicollet First network.
As a Park Nicollet First member, you have access to Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital and St. Francis Regional Medical Center. In addition, Park Nicollet has relationships with Abbott Northwestern Hospital and Children's Hospital – Minneapolis, as well as Fairview Ridges Hospital and Maple Grove Hospital (both for pediatric and obstetric/gynecology services only). To receive in-network benefits at one of these hospitals, a Park Nicollet First network provider must specifically direct you to obtain care at that hospital.
If you’re away from home and get sick or hurt, we’ve got you covered! When you travel outside the Medica service area* you can get network coverage by visiting a provider in the Travel Program Network. This nationwide network is one of the largest in the country. If you have children attending college outside the service area, they can use this network, too.
Receiving care from a Travel Network provider is just like getting care within the Medica service area. When you visit a provider, simply show your member ID card. If you have a deductible, copayment or coinsurance, it will apply. Travel Network providers will file claims for you, so you won't have any additional paperwork.
Keep in Mind:
*The Medica service area includes Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and western Wisconsin.
