Anesthesia

Each specialty we serve has its own challenges. We know them inside out. And of all the practices we serve, anesthesia is the most unique.

Billing and coding for anesthesia can be nearly as complex as the practice itself. It is the only specialty that includes time as a billing component.

For example:

  1. Did you know that there are approximately 4,000 surgical, medical, and radiology procedures represented by 268 anesthesia codes?
  2. Did you know that if there is a break in the anesthesia time- you cannot bill for that time? An anesthesia provider can add blocks of time around an interruption in anesthesia time as long as s/he is furnishing continuous anesthesia care within the time periods around the interruptions.
  3. The complexities of CRNA billing, and concurrency checking are unique to anesthesia.

It’s complicated, but if you have a comprehensive anesthesia billing, coding and revenue cycle management solution, you are in good shape. Our team is familiar with all of the ins-and-outs of anesthesia services and the fine points of billing successfully for it. Simply stated, MICI knows what it takes for your practice to make good money or lose lots of it.
