Aliera Healthcare, a Sandy Springs-based provider of traditional and non-traditional healthcare plans, March 21 announced a new affiliation with MinuteClinic, the retail medical clinic of CVS Health.

The agreement provides Aliera members across all individual and group healthcare plans with access to MinuteClinic services at no cost and with no applicable co-pays or deductibles.

With more than 1,100 locations in 33 states, MinuteClinic offers patients a broad scope of services, such as consultation and treatment with licensed nurse practitioners and physician assistants for minor illnesses, wellness services, physical exams, vaccinations and other medical needs. Located inside select CVS Pharmacy and Target stores, MinuteClinics are open seven days a week with no appointments required.

“The alliance with MinuteClinic is a great step forward in providing our members with a wider range of convenient, high quality healthcare choices,” Aliera Senior Vice President Chase Moses said in a news release. “We believe our members will take comfort in knowing they have this outstanding option available and are pleased to be affiliated with one of the industry’s most iconic brands to enhance our traditional and non-traditional healthcare plan offerings.”

In 2006, MinuteClinic became the first healthcare provider to receive accreditation from The Joint Commission and today holds the organization’s Gold Seal of Approval. The designation demonstrates MinuteClinic's compliance with a rigid and extensive set of national standards for ambulatory healthcare quality and safety.
