New Year, New Digital Care Solutions

Finding ways to connect virtually has been vital as we stay home to keep ourselves and others safe and healthy. While we are apart, we know health care needs can’t take a back seat. 2020 was a year filled with much uncertainty and many challenges however, there is a silver lining, an inspiring and unprecedented level of health care innovation happening all around the globe. 

Because care doesn’t stop, we know that the same ways patients and members have always been treated have to evolve to better serve individuals during these changing times. To align with our mission to deliver a simpler and more connected health care experience, Allina Health | Aetna is excited to offer our members two new innovative digital care solutions and is proud to partner with 98point6 and Hinge Health.

Experience Telehealth with 98point6 

Through the technology and expertise of 98point6, Allina Health | Aetna is now able to offer a text-based virtual care solution. Eligible members and their covered dependents have unlimited on-demand access to virtual, board-certified primary care physicians via an easy-to-use text-based system. Allina Health | Aetna transitioned its telemedicine provider to 98point6 to better meet the evolving needs of our members and help to shape the way they receive primary care. 

If you are feeling sick or have a health concern, 98point6’s doctors are on-demand and ready to help you 24/7.
