Why Your Insurance Plan Should Include Us

Consider the advantages of our health network during open enrollment this year.

Employers will typically offer employees health insurance options in the fall in what is known as the “open enrollment period.” If you have health insurance through your employer, this period can set the stage for effectively managing health care options for yourself and your entire family. This is especially true if you’ve experienced certain life events like a growing family or the onset of new health concerns.

Choose Us During Open Enrollment

During this open enrollment period, ask your employer to offer insurance options that include the Froedtert & MCW health network so you can experience exceptional care enhanced by the latest medical innovation and scientific discoveries. Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin facilities accept most insurance plans. Please review a list of the insurance companies and plans that work with us.

When it comes to understanding the providers in your health plan, we think it’s important that you consider the advantages of a health network that includes an academic medical center like the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network. Here are just a few reasons:

1. The only academic medical center in eastern Wisconsin.

Academic medical centers are partnerships between medical schools and their affiliated hospitals and clinics. Innovation, research and discovery are the hallmarks of academic medicine, translating new discoveries and advances in medicine to benefit the patient. There are fewer than 120 academic medical centers in the U.S. The Medical College of Wisconsin is the state’s only private medical school and health sciences graduate school, and is the second largest research institution in the state.

The physicians and advanced practice providers at Froedtert Hospital are Medical College of Wisconsin faculty members and researchers – many of whom are internationally renowned leaders in their fields. They work together in specialized teams across the Froedtert & MCW health network to offer the highest level of expertise and advanced care – from primary care for routine health needs such as colds and flu to the most complex health needs such as cancer or cardiovascular disease treatments. In addition, these same providers are responsible for many scientific discoveries that include new ways to prevent, detect and treat disease.

An academic medical center attracts physicians with a sustained passion for the delivery and application of new treatments. The concentration of faculty physicians and researchers collaborating in close proximity is a direct contributor to the depth and breadth of services provided to the benefit to the community. Our nurses, physician assistants and other clinical staff demonstrate a commitment to our patients that results in numerous awards and national recognition.
