Plan information

You can find additional information about this plan below.

In Minnesota, we’re required to ensure you have access to primary care providers within 30 miles or minutes of your home, and access to specialists within 60 miles or minutes. Given the availability of providers in certain areas, that’s not always possible. If so, we’ll apply for a Network Adequacy Waiver from the Minnesota Department of Health. 

2023 Minnesota Department of Health Network Adequacy Waiver for Park Nicollet with HealthPartners Medical Group First with Medica 

The network includes Children’s Health Care Minneapolis & St. Paul, Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital, Lakeview Hospital – Stillwater, Regions Hospital, and St. Francis Regional Medical Center. Park Nicollet and HealthPartners Medical Group First also have relationships with M Health Fairview Ridges Hospital, and Maple Grove Hospital (for pediatric and obstetric/gynecology services only). To receive in-network benefits at one of these hospitals, a Park Nicollet and HealthPartners Medical Group First network provider must specifically direct you to receive care at that hospital. 

One unique feature of an ACO plan is how we work with your provider to coordinate your health care. By sharing member information with each other, Medica and your ACO can help you get the care you need and deliver programs and services to help you get and stay healthy.

If you or your dependents don't want us and the ACO to share your information with each other, complete the opt-out form or call Customer Service at 1-855-727-5178.

Please note: You'll still get communications about your care management directly from us and your ACO providers.

With Amwell, you can also access therapy or psychiatry services for behavioral health concerns such as anxiety, depression and stress (covered under your plan as a behavioral health office visit).
