Anesthesiology deals with the total perioperative care of patients before, during, and after surgery. An anesthesiologist gives the right dosage of drugs to the patient. They are responsible for waking the patient post-surgery along with the pain-free procedures. They monitor the patient’s vitals carefully during surgery and alter the dosage administered accordingly.
There are different levels of Anesthesia providers – the Anesthesiologists, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA), and Anesthesiologist Assistants (AA). They have a critical role in understanding the patient’s history & conditions.
Requirements of Anesthesia Billing
Anesthesia billing is complicated as it requires documentation of a high number of records, like Pre-operative Review, Anesthesia Sheet, and post-operative review that state that the patient has not suffered any complications due to the anesthetic administered.
The accomplishment of an anesthesiology service largely depends on its ability to generate & collect revenue. Successful anesthesia billing includes an experienced and trained revenue cycle team, specialty-specific billing software, and compliant billing practices. Outsourcing your billing & coding needs will help you to focus on patient care. Medical Billing teams consist of a team of experts who receive specialized training in billing for anesthesiology services.
Anesthesia Billing Services for Nurse Anesthetists
Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) have the option to bill their cases as medically directed or non-medically directed. The latter may be appealing for practices that have difficulty meeting the TEFRA requirements, specifically the anesthesiologist’s presence at induction and emergence.
