Anesthesiology & Pain Management

Anesthesiology is concerned with the perioperative care of patients before, during and after surgery. Not only is an anesthesia provider responsible for developing anesthetic plans, administering anesthetics and the overall medical and pain management during surgery, but is also responsible for the optimization of a patient’s medical condition for a safe outcome. It’s safe to say that the job of an anesthesiologist is not easy. Dealing with the challenging aspects of anesthesia and pain management billing is definitely not an added responsibility that a provider needs. So, why not consider outsourcing to an anesthesia billing company?

Anesthesia Billing Requirements

Revenue cycle mistakes are expensive. Anesthesiologists run the risk of losing thousands of dollars if their anesthesia billing services are not efficient and effective. One of the most challenging aspects of anesthesia billing is the documentation of records. We understand the importance of coding accurately, using the right modifiers, reporting qualifying circumstances and physical status modifiers and properly calculating time for anesthesia services. Documentation is therefore key for accurate anesthesia medical billing. Here’s what anesthesia providers need to know about the documentation of records.

Pre-Anesthesia Assessment

  • The pre-operative review is completed by the anesthesia provider and consists of a comprehensive review of the patient’s and family’s medical history, assessment of the patient’s physical condition and risk factors to calculate the required dosage of anesthetics.

Anesthesia Report

The anesthesia sheet involves the documentation of the following:

  • Base Units: Reflects the complexity and skilled required in providing the anesthetic service. More complex procedures earn a higher value of base units.
  • Monthly Sequential BillingTime Units: Reflects the time spent administering anesthetic or monitoring the patient’s condition before, during and after surgery.
  • Modifiers: Used to identify the anesthesia provider, identify MAC services (when appropriate) and assign the appropriate physical status.

Post-Anesthesia Assessment

  • The post-operative review is done by the anesthesia provider and the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) team by rendering appropriate pain-block services after surgery and evaluating that the patient did not suffer any complications as a result of the anesthesia delivered.
