Allina Health pauses interruptions to non-emergent, outpatient clinic scheduling

Allina Health strongly believes in the extensive services we provide to help patients, and we are proud of the charity care and robust financial assistance we offer. We are committed to listening to our community and working to better understand the barriers to accessing the financial support available to our patients.

Allina Health will take a thoughtful pause on any new interruptions to non-emergent, outpatient clinic scheduling while we re-examine our policy. Reducing barriers to care is central to our mission as a steward of community health, and we will carefully study additional ways to educate our teams about the extensive financial services available to patients experiencing financial barriers to care.

Allina Health is a leader in addressing health-related social needs for our patients, including decreasing financial barriers to care. As part of this thoughtful pause, we will engage community partners in important dialogue about reducing barriers to care and the collective role we all play in that process.

We encourage anyone who feels they need financial support or are unsure what support they may be eligible for to call or visit the financial assistance page on
