Two major players in Minnesota health care have teamed up on a new insurance plan they say removes obstacles that keep people from getting the best care. The plan that Allina Health and insurer Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota unveiled Tuesday offers a handful of free office visits plus full coverage of many prescription drugs and lab screenings. It eliminates many co-pays. The two organizations say the offering is the result of extensive interviews with patients and employers in an attempt to find out what they don't like about existing plans.
