Savings of up to 20%

Delivering quality care at a lower cost

Hennepin Healthcare and Medica have partnered to create a unique ACO health plan, Clear Value with MedicaSM, that delivers quality care, improved member experience, and lower cost.

Cost savings

As a non-profit health system, Hennepin Healthcare can offer high-quality care at up to 20% lower cost than most competitors. We are committed to providing Hennepin County and Minneapolis with affordable care that members can count on to improve and maintain health.

About Clear Value

Hennepin Healthcare offers an integrated system of care that includes a nationally recognized Level 1 Adult and Pediatric Trauma Center, as well as a clinic system with eight primary care clinics, including 60 adult and 25 pediatric specialties located in Minneapolis and across Hennepin County. Whether close to home or close to work, Clear Value with MedicaSM offers convenient ways to receive care for a variety of conditions, including video visits with Hennepin Healthcare providers.

The Clear Value member experience

Hennepin Healthcare network

  • Our 8 primary care clinics are conveniently located throughout Minneapolis and Hennepin County to provide access to healthcare close to work and home. Many locations have onsite pharmacies.
  • The Clinic & Specialty Center brings 25 primary and specialty care clinics under one roof, providing a wide range of medical care in one convenient location. The modern design utilizes team centers to provide collaborative provider care. In addition, advanced diagnostic and imaging services, cancer center, rehabilitation services, pharmacy, and surgery make the Clinic & Specialty Center a full-service healthcare destination.
  • HCMC, located on the downtown Minneapolis campus, is nationally recognized as a Level I Adult and Pediatric trauma center. In addition to inpatient care, HCMC offers several outpatient specialty care services, including wound healing, burn center, rehabilitation, and many more.
  • Gillette Children's Hospital focuses on pediatric medical care, treating patients who have some of the rarest and most complex conditions in pediatric medicine.  Children who have disabilities often need a more advanced level of medical care than the average pediatric patient. Gillette does not treat common childhood illnesses or cancer.
  • Video visits are a way for members to get convenient care from the comfort of their homes.

What is an Accountable Care Organization?

Accountable care organizations (ACOs) are networks or teams of healthcare providers (such as clinics, hospitals, doctors, and specialists) that partner with Medica to make health care more efficient and improve the member experience. The network may be smaller than Medica's other open access networks, but the benefits are bigger and better.
