How does SleepGuardian by Anesthesia Connections work with insurance?
One of the most common billing FAQS is how our services are billed by insurance. SleepGuardian bills your health insurance carrier for the anesthesia service and the anesthesia service is a separate and distinct claim from any surgical claim issued to your health insurance carrier by the physician specialist. If the anesthesia service is not a covered benefit provided by your health insurance carrier, you are responsible for the anesthesia service balance, and you are mailed a bill for the anesthesia service. SleepGuardian accepts personal checks and Master or Visa card payment. We recommend that you speak with your insurance provider to learn more about whether or not this coverage

How is the anesthesia service billed and what can I expect to pay?
The anesthesia physician service is billed on a time and complexity basis. The billing code generally used for GYN anesthesia services is 00952, and the normal units of care range from 6-8. Each unit of care is charged at $100 per unit, so the total fee for anesthesia services would generally range between $600 to $800 before insurance payments and allowances. In our experience, anesthesia service is an in-network benefit, if your gynecologist is a network provider with your insurance plan. This insurance rule is called the “RAP” rule (Radiologists, Anesthesiologists & Pathologists) where a patient generally does not choose this specific provider. Occasionally, claims may be paid as out of network, and in this instance, we contact your insurance provider for reconsideration of the claim according to the RAP rule. It is often beneficial for patients (or primary insured individuals) to contact the insurance carrier to request an Explanation of Benefit (EOB) form.
