Transparency

Wisconsin has a national reputation for providing high quality, highly-integrated health care.  Wisconsin has been recognized by the federal Agency for Healthcare Quality and Research as ranking in the top ten percent of all states as measured by the quality of the care provided for four years in a row.  In addition, Wisconsin hospitals are committed to sharing information that will help consumers make well-informed decisions about their health care.

CheckPoint (www.wiCheckPoint.org)
This website provides reliable information about the quality and safety of care provided by Wisconsin hospitals.

PricePoint (www.wiPricePoint.org)
This website allows health care consumers to receive basic, facility-specific information about health care services and charges.

ServePoint (www.wiServePoint.org)
This website is designed to familiarize the user with the services, programs and assistance that hospitals offer at or below cost.

Transparency Toolkit
This toolkit was created by the WHA Transparency Taskforce to help hospitals improve their price transparency while complying with two new and separate regulatory transparency issues, the ACA hospital charges requirement, and the IRS 501(r) rule as it relates to financial assistance and billing & collections.
