The move to Medica: What's new?

(04/10/2024) Starting Sept. 1, 2024, Medica will be the provider for Anoka-Hennepin health insurance benefits. Open enrollment will run from May 28 through June 12.

Medica was previously the provider for Anoka-Hennepin and the list below highlights some changes since the district was last with Medica:

  • The Fit Choices Health Club Reimbursement program has been replaced with the Life Time® Digital fitness program. Stay fit anywhere, anytime. Kickstart healthy habits with a Life Time Digital membership at no additional cost.
  • My Health Rewards has additional reward dollars available with earnings up to $460.
  • Digital enhancements have been made to the Medica member portal and an app is now offered. Additionally, the ‘Find Care’ provider online search has been enhanced.
  • Sanvello has changed to Self Care by AbleTo.
  • A custom Medica Customer Service phone number is available at 1-877-335-9135.
    • Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. - 8 p.m. (closed 8 a.m. - 9 a.m. Thursdays).
    • Saturday 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. CT.
  • To prepare insurance-eligible employees, a pre-enrollment website has been created

More information on these items will be available in member packets and at open enrollment meetings. 

Due to the change in the health insurance provider, all insurance-eligible employees will be required to log in to the online enrollment system Worklife and make an election for health coverage. Current health insurance selections will not roll into the new insurance year.
