BILLING AND PAYMENTS:

When you provide your billing information upon admission to the hospital, this info is forwarded to our professional billing company, Anesthesia Business Consultants (ABC). You do not need to contact us unless you have been contacted by ABC for the need to update the information.  Please notify ABC immediately if your address, phone number or insurance info changes.  Please be aware that you will recieve two bills for anesthesia services:  one from the hospital for the supplies, equipment and medication used during your surgery, and one from Denali Anesthesia for the direct care and services provided by the anesthesiologist or CRNA.

Please call ABC at 1-800-275-8752 for any questions regarding your statement, claim status, or payment obligations.

 

INSURANCE:

Anesthesia Business Consultants (ABC) on behalf of Denali Anesthesia, P.C. bills insurance as a courtesy to our patients.  ABC will 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 until such time that your insurance company makes payment.  You will be billed for any balance due that your health plan designates as your deductible and/or co-insurance obligation.

 

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 a statement is issued to you, we ask that payment be made in full immediately to ABC.  We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, 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 ABC at 1-800-275-8752 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 billing company, ABC, 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 company.  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.
