Milwaukee, Wis. Froedtert Hospital has been recognized by the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) as a Patient Financial Communications Best Practices Adopter. This is a national, first-of-its-kind recognition that only a select number of hospitals, health systems and physician practices have received.
This recognition reassures consumers that Froedtert Hospital is following best practices related to its financial interactions with patients. These interactions cover a wide range of matters related to insurance coverage and eligibility, as well as billing and payment arrangements.
Community Memorial Hospital and St. Joseph’s Hospital received this recognition in June 2017. The recognition remains in effect for three years, the health network will be eligible to re-apply at that time.
