Anesthesia is the most complex billing of all the medical specialties due to the number of elements which make up an anesthesia service. It is important your billing team has a clear understanding of the differences in anesthesia billing to other specialties in order to capture the highest reimbursement possible.
Sierra Health Services developed its own proprietary billing software utilizing our experience in the anesthesia billing industry of anesthesiologists and CRNAs throughout the country. Our software allows us to respond to coding updates, CMS rules and guidelines, and payer specifications at any time. This flexibility allows us to adapt to changes in the industry without any lag time. Our billing platform has interfaces with every major hospital EHR system, allowing us to load demographic and charge data electronically into our system, increasing the speed and accuracy of claim submission.
