Statement on policy change

Allina Health remains committed to the creation of the highest quality, affordable and accessible care. Our policy that interrupted the scheduling of non-emergency, outpatient clinic care for patients who do not engage after significant outreach to support the resolution of their medical debt has been extensively reviewed. We have determined there are opportunities to engage our clinical teams and technology differently to provide financial assistance resources for patients who need this support. We will formally transition away from our policy that interrupted the scheduling of non-emergency, outpatient clinic care.

We are grateful to our compassionate team members who work tirelessly to remove barriers to care by assisting patients with financial counseling and programs. We remain proud of our nationally recognized efforts to support patients and communities in proactively addressing key social factors that impact health and look forward to building on our work to support patients. 

How to request reinstatement of outpatient care access

Any patient whose non-emergency care has been interrupted may call Allina Health at 612-262-9000 or 1-800-859-5077 to discuss reinstatement. Our team is available 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. on Friday.
