Learn more about what the FVHO acquisition means for you and your cancer care at ThedaCare.

General:

Why did ThedaCare acquire FVHO?
By combining the world-class minds and compassionate hearts of these two organizations, we are advancing our mission and are able to provide comprehensive cancer care to more patients right here in the communities we serve.

How does this acquisition benefit patients and the community?
Through the combined expertise of these organizations, patients and their families can be confident in knowing they have access to world-class, highly-specialized cancer care experts and advanced technology along their journey of care, right here in our community.

How will this acquisition enhance access to expert, local cancer care?
The acquisition expands access to care for the patients in the communities where they live and work including Appleton, Neenah and Oshkosh, and especially in the rural areas including Berlin, Shawano, New London and Waupaca where ThedaCare is offering cancer care multiple days per week.

What does cancer care look like at ThedaCare?
ThedaCare Cancer Care, which now includes approximately 25 oncology providers, is focused on care that respects patients and their families by honoring their choices, brings a team of top-talent care providers to the table, and offers a broad range of treatments, services and resources. The team of cancer specialists works closely with a patient’s primary care physician as part of the larger care team. ThedaCare Cancer Care also offers access to the latest technologies and treatments, including clinical trials, connections to community resources, as well as support for navigating complex care steps and complementary care like music therapy, massage and nutrition.

Provider and Care Plans:

What does this announcement mean for me and my care moving forward?
We understand relationships with doctors and entire care teams are personal. This is especially true for patients and families on their journey through cancer care. We are committed to providing as seamless a transition as possible, providing continued care in your community and considering the patient experience in every decision.

Will I see my same providers and care team at the same locations?
Uninterrupted care is a priority. We are committed to providing continued care in the communities where you are now treated. Patients were contacted directly with details regarding appointment locations.

Will my medical records be transferred to ThedaCare?
We are committed to providing a seamless transition for patients. This includes transferring patient records.

Insurance and Payments:

I have Network insurance. Is that accepted by ThedaCare?
An agreement was made with Network Health that will continue to provide FVHO patients with coverage for a period of time. Network Health informed patients by letter of the continuation of benefits. 

I have a balance due with FVHO, am on a payment plan and/or am awaiting financial aid. Will that change once FVHO is part of ThedaCare?
Payments and billing through June 3 will be handled by the FVHO billing department. Past due bills from FVHO will continue to be handled by FVHO. For treatment or services starting June 4, new bills will be issued by ThedaCare.

Foundation & Events:

Will fundraisers and special events such as Ring That Bell, Relay for Life, and Light The Night continue?
ThedaCare has long been engaged with non-profit organizations throughout the Fox Cities and beyond. We are committed to supporting the communities in which we live and work with health initiatives, events and sponsorships. Events in 2018 will continue including Ring That Bell, Relay For Life and Light The Night.
