Accountable Care Organization network

HealthEast and Medica are working together to offer this unique network that delivers quality care, patient satisfaction and lower costs. Inspiration Health by HealthEast provides easy access to the largest health care provider in the Twin Cities' East Metro area, including more than 14 primary care clinics and multiple specialty care locations, home care and hospice care.
