Allina Health | Aetna Offers Access to MinuteClinic® at No Cost to the Member*

MinuteClinic services make it easy for members of small group, self-funded plans to receive high-quality, convenient care

October 17, 2019

MINNEAPOLIS – Employers who choose an Allina Health | Aetna self-funded plan will enjoy a new feature that increases access points to care for their employees.

Now, eligible members can access care right in their neighborhood at no cost to them by visiting MinuteClinic®, a walk-in clinic inside select CVS Pharmacy® and Target stores. In addition to a $0 co-pay, MinuteClinics® provide many other benefits, including:

  • A broad range of services to keep the whole family healthy. MinuteClinic health care providers treat and diagnose a variety of illnesses, injuries and conditions. They can also write prescriptions, when medically appropriate.
  • Extended access to care as MinuteClinic is open seven days a week, including evenings and weekends. Members can walk in or schedule appointments online beforehand. Additionally, they can pick-up their prescriptions on-site.
  • Preventative care, including flu vaccinations, physicals and treatment for medical matters that are not life threatening, such as ear infections and strep throat.

“We pride ourselves on providing affordable care to our members and this is a perfect example of how we are doing just that,” said Tom Lindquist, CEO at Allina Health | Aetna. “Convenient access to the many services MinuteClinic provides is essential to keeping our members healthy, and equally as important is the ability for our members to access those services at a low cost.”

Employers who are interested in learning more about Allina Health | Aetna self-funded plans which include MinuteClinic visits at a $0 copay can contact their Allina Health | Aetna representative for more information.

*Editor’s note: This benefit became available to members of small group, self-funded plans as of September 1, 2019. We expect to receive the requisite regulatory approvals for offering to fully insured customers with effective dates beginning January 1, 2020.Media Contact
