Since Anesthesia Medical Group (AMG) physicians and staff are not employed by the facilities in which we practice, we bill on a fee-for-service basis for our professional services. Our charges are based on the surgical procedure, the anesthesia time required for the surgery and your health status. The hospital or facility will charge for the equipment, drugs and supplies used by our physicians and certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs). Questions regarding the facility charges should be directed to the facility’s Patient Service Department.
Medicare and other health plans require us to submit two claims for our services, one for the anesthesiologist and one for the CRNA. For these plans, you will receive two statements from us for any balance due. You are not being double billed. We are following the regulations set forth by the insurance plan for billing for anesthesia services. Also, the total payment we receive for each bill is half of what we would receive if only one claim had been filed for your service.
We can provide an estimate of the charges that will be incurred for your upcoming procedure. However, we cannot guarantee the actual total charge because anesthesia services are billed, in part, on the length of time our anesthesia providers spend with you before, during and after your surgery. Thus, the actual charges for your surgery cannot be ultimately determined until after the surgical event.
To receive this estimate, please provide us with the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code, along with the surgeon’s estimate of the surgical time. This information can be obtained from your surgeon’s office.
If you have questions about your bill or services, please contact our Patient Service Department at 615-327-4304. Additional methods of reaching us are located in the "Contact Us" area of our website.
Please contact our Patient Service Department for payment information at 615-327-4304 or toll free at 877-433-4304.
Anesthesia Medical Group (AMG) will submit a health claim form to the health plan provided by you or the hospital/surgery center. Once the health plan has paid, you will be billed for any balance that your health plan applied to your deductible or co-insurance. You will also be billed if you have no insurance coverage or if your health plan deems you not eligible for benefits. It is your responsibility to settle any accounts not covered by your health plan as soon as possible.
