Insurance benefits have become very complex in the last several years. Your benefit plan may only limit you to treat with a subset of contracted providers. In addition, for patients that may require surgery, AWH/i-Health may be in-network with your insurance plan but the surgical facility may be out-of-network. Due to the complexity of insurance benefits, AWH/i-Health requests that all of our patients contact your insurance if you have any questions regarding in-network providers offered by your insurance plan. If AWH is contracted with your plan, but the surgical facility or hospital is not in-network, we may recommend transferring your care to another i-Health OBGYN physician.
AWH physicians provide maternity and delivery services and perform surgeries at Abbott Northwestern (Mother Baby Center) and M Health Fairview Southdale. In addition to hospitals, they also perform surgeries at the Edina Specialty Surgical Center. It is important to inquire which facilities your insurance plan will allow for delivery of your baby and/or perform surgeries. In addition, it will be important for you to confirm that the facility location is also in-network with your insurance.

Although our legal business name has changed, we will continue to offer the comprehensive solution for your Obstetric and Gynecology care.

Out-of-pocket expenses are determined by your insurance plan during claim processing. These amounts may include co-payments, deductibles, and/or co-insurance.

While AWH encourages patients to pay in full after your first statement, we understand that some may need flexible payment options. AWH does offer some limited payment plans based on your balance. Length of time allowed is also based on your balance. If you need greater flexibility than what AWH can offer, we do have a relationship with Care Credit. More information on Care Credit can be found here.
Preventative care includes annual physicals, immunizations, screening lab tests and other services intended to prevent illness or detect problems before you may notice any symptoms.
Diagnostic care involves treating or diagnosing a problem you’re having by monitoring existing problems, checking out new symptoms or following up on abnormal test results. Examples of diagnostic care are STD testing to diagnosis a vaginal infection and diagnostic mammogram and/or ultrasound to follow up on a breast lump or pain.
Your insurance coverage may differ depending on which type of services you receive. Many preventative services are covered at 100% with no out-of-pocket costs, while diagnostic services can have co-insurance or amounts applied to your deductible which results in out-of-pocket costs.
