Milwaukee-based providers join NOVO’s Bundled Payment Program for Health Care

APPLETON, Wis. — A pair of Milwaukee-based providers have partnered with NOVO Health to improve patient access for employers and employees participating in NOVO’s Bundled Payment Program for Health Care.

Providers at Aspen Orthopedic Specialists and Bluemound Surgery Center became available Jan. 1 to program participants, who benefit from the price bundling of a variety of health care services. The addition of these orthopedic providers to the NOVO Health panel will enhance the options available to employers seeking cost saving, integrated care in Milwaukee and surrounding communities in southeastern Wisconsin.

Founded in 1973, Aspen Orthopedic Specialists provide specialized medical and surgical treatment to patients in the greater Milwaukee area. Based in Brookfield, with several regional clinics, the team at Aspen offers advanced diagnostic and treatment options for orthopedic and podiatric injuries and conditions, as well as physical therapy.

The Bluemound Cosmetic Surgery Center is an advanced cosmetic surgery center located in Waukesha, Wis. Accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF), the center is used by several specialty medical practices in Milwaukee.

“Ease of access to quality health care is a critical component of the NOVO Health model,” Curt Kubiak, CEO of NOVO Health, said. “These are great partners that will help us make it easier for employers in that region to take advantage of our program and help us advance a sustainable model of care.”

Availability is dependent on company plan design and networks.
