Payments and Billings

Denali Anesthesia, P.C. bills on a fee-for-service basis for the professional services of our anesthesiologists and CRNA’s. Our charges are based on the surgical procedure, the anesthesia time required for the surgery, and your health status.  When you provide your billing information upon admission to Alaska Regional Hospital, this information is available to your anesthesia provider.  You do not need to contact us with your billing information unless you suspect that the information is listed incorrectly or needs to be updated.  Please notify us immediately if your address, telephone number or insurance information changes.  Please be aware that you will receive two bills for anesthesia services:  one from the hospital for hospital-owned supplies, equipment and medications; and one from Denali Anesthesia for the direct services of the anesthesiologist or CRNA.

INSURANCE:

Denali Anesthesia, P.C. bills insurance as a courtesy to our patients.  We generally bill our patients once their insurance companies have responded.  Any unpaid balance due on a claim is the responsibility of the patient or legal guardian and not of the insurance company.  If your insurance company fails to pay on a claim within 60 days, you will receive a bill from us.  We ask that you become actively engaged in your plan’s payment process, and you will be required to make a payment to us until such time that your insurance company makes payment.  You will be billed for any balance that your health plan applied to your deductible or co-insurance. 

COSMETIC SURGERY PROCEDURES:

Anesthesia provided for elective cosmetic procedures must be prepaid.  Contact our office at (907) 258-2149 for an estimate and more details.

PAYMENT POLICY:

Once we issue a statement to you, we ask that payment be made in full immediately to our office.  We accept Visa, Mastercard, and Discover for your convenience.  Checks should be issued to “Denali Anesthesia.”  Payments should be mailed to:  P.O. Box 202149, Anchorage, AK  99520.  Payment plan arrangements can be made by calling our office if you are unable to pay your account in full, but we require that consistent monthly payments be made in order to participate.  Please maintain a current address and telephone number with our office in order to avoid unnecessary collective actions.

ACCURACY OF YOUR BILL:

All of our charges are reviewed by a physician, who is a member of the Denali Anesthesia Board of Directors, prior to being sent to our billing office.  We monitor our charge processes by performing ongoing in-house auditing.  These audits continue for up to a year after charges come through our office.
