Encourage Congress to protect patients from surprise bills

Frequently Asked Questions: Billing


An anesthesia care team is when one provider is the anesthesiologist and the other is a certified registered nurse anesthetist. Both the anesthesiologist and anesthetist shared in caring for the patient, allowing both to bill for their services. In the event that your insurance company requests billing under both provider names, the total sum is not greater than if the entire bill was submitted in just the name of the anesthesiologist or the anesthetist.


Anesthesia groups bill separately from the facility. You may file an appeal with your insurance carrier for additional payments on your account, and in some cases, we may file the appeal on your behalf.
