Inclusive care for all

Allina Health is committed to delivering inclusive care without discrimination. Your care team works together to ensure all patients feel comfortable, included and accepted every step of the way.

Preventive care

We make it easier to support your LGBTQ+ and primary health care needs – all in one place. Get vaccines, health screenings, physicals and LGBTQ+ health care in the same visit.

Your LGBTQ+ health care provider may recommend routine screenings for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), HIV/AIDS and hepatitis A, B and C.

Consider including HIV/AIDS care and prevention (such as PrEP therapy) in your primary care plan if you are living with or are at risk of HIV/AIDS. 

Your provider may recommend vaccines against:

  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Other common illnesses, such as the flu

LGBTQ+ mental health

Mental health challenges can affect anyone. People who identify as LGBTQ+ may be at greater risk of experiencing mental health concerns triggered by a lack of acceptance from others or coping with illness.

Considering mental health support? A mental health consultation can make it easier to find specialized LGBTQ+ mental health care.

Insurance coverage and cost

LGBTQ+ care is typically covered by insurance. Talk with your insurance provider about medical coverage and get a price estimate before scheduling an appointment.
