For our services provided in the anesthesia care team model, you are charged for the professional services of both the anesthesiologist and CRNA as dictated by national billing rules. These are not duplicate charges. The charge of each provider is identified for the insurance companies who make payment based on their contracts with CVAA; we apply the payment based on their Explanation of Benefits (EOB) to determine any remaining patient responsibility. You will also receive a bill from the facility at which your surgery was performed for the use of its operating room and anesthesia related equipment, supplies, and medications.
You are responsible for the charges incurred in your care regardless of whether or not you have insurance or the type of insurance you have:
- If you have insurance, we will file a claim for your services with the insurance company based on the information you have provided to the hospital. The insurance information is also reflected on the statement you will receive after your insurance has processed the claim: approximately 4 – 6 weeks after your service. If you have corrected or additional insurance information, please contact us immediately to update your account.
- If you do not have insurance, you will receive a statement approximately 2 weeks after your services are provided.
If you do not have insurance or have a significant deductible / copay, after you have received your first statement, please contact us at the number below to make payment arrangements.
