SERVICES PROVIDED BY ANESTHESIA ASSOCIATES OF MISSISSIPPI Dear Patient: The surgery you have had or are about to receive has (3) separately billable components, which consist of:
- The professional services of the Physician
- The professional services of the Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist
- The facility fee (for use of the surgery center)
Each of these entities is a separate company and cannot answer billing questions of the other, so please contact the appropriate company for billing-related concerns.
Anesthesia is commonly a covered component of your surgery. As a courtesy to you, the bill / claim for your anesthesia services will be filed directly to your primary insurance carrier. We have accepted assignment of benefits and your insurance carrier should send the payment directly to our remittance address. If we have a secondary insurance on file, we will file a claim on your behalf for the amount not paid by your primary insurance. If no secondary insurance was provided at the time of service, we will send you a statement for the co-insurance due as determined by your insurance carrier. In the event that Anesthesia Associates of Mississippi, PLLC is not a participant within your insurance plan, we will work with your carrier through appeal efforts to insure that you are not penalized for our non-participating (a.k.a. out-of-network) status. The amount you may owe will be within the participating benefit rate limits in your area. We are often able to negotiate with your insurer to allow Minimal or No out-of-pocket anesthesia costs to you due to our out-of-network status. If your insurance carrier sends payment directly to you, please endorse the back of the check and list “Pay to the order of Anesthesia Associates of Mississippi, PLLC” above your signature. Or Write a personal check for the amount received. Please forward payment to the name and address listed below. We will also require a copy of the original explanation of benefits received with payment. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 1-877-360-1566.
