Value doesn’t have to mean a tradeoff between cost and quality. With Froedtert Health’s best of both worlds approach, we’ve proven affordable quality is possible.

Affordable Care

Local surveys have shown that Froedtert Health’s commercial insurance payments are at the market average and lower than several health systems in the region when risk adjusted for the severity of patients treated in our health system.

Medicare Spending Bests National Averages

Froedtert Health’s average Medicare Spending Per Beneficiary (MSPB) rate across its three hospitals bests both the national average and many local hospitals. That means the government spends less per Medicare patient at Froedtert Health hospitals than the median spending amount across all hospitals in the nation—a measure of efficiency, which impacts cost. 

Quality Care Costs Less

Quality care costs less because doing it right the first time saves money. The use of standardized, evidence-based practices to assure appropriate, efficient care means better care and lower costs.
