Wilderness Health ACO hospitals and clinics help Northern Minnesota employers manage employee health care quality and cost. The network option is available to fully insured and self insured groups. As a value network, Wilderness Health ACO is less expensive than our open access networks. It is typically offered side-by-side with an open access option to accommodate members who prefer a broader network.
