Billing at the Milwaukee Health Department Clinics: An Analysis of Potential Revenue Gains

The Milwaukee Health Department operates six health clinics to provide services to uninsured and underinsured residents. This paper looks at ways by which the department could increase clinic revenue. At the time of the report, the department only billed Medicaid HMOs. The authors recommend that the health department make changes to its billing process, bill Medicaid for sexually transmitted disease tests and treatments, increase monitoring of the clinics, and investigate billing private insurance companies.
