Be Well. Preventative Care with a Heart.

I thoroughly enjoy working with our patients in the small communities of northeastern Wisconsin. They are from the “work hard, play hard” philosophy that makes the Midwest strong. Some parts of the country call it “Midwest Stubborn,” but there’s nothing like it when you need to get something done. When the next layers of the healthcare law go into effect in January, I’m confident our patients will be on board with one of the most important things for them and their families – preventative care.

Most ThedaCare patients won’t notice much change – we’ve been champions of preventive care for years. Our primary care emphasizes prevention and disease management. We have some of the best outcomes of any healthcare organization in the country because we focus on keeping you well. We want you to be your healthy best self so you can enjoy every moment.

The difference with the new law is that insurance MUST cover a required list of preventive services without charging you a copayment or coinsurance. Even if you haven’t met your yearly deductible – it’s covered.

One thing – you need to get these services from a network provider. But with ThedaCare, you’re in good hands. We partner with you to manage any illness you may have. Using MyThedaCare and talking with your physicians, you always have immediate access to your care team.

Better access. Better experience. Better outcomes. It’s how we already do business. And now the new law makes it easier for helping us help you be well.
