Reliable Anesthesia Billing Service Management

Unlike other medical specialties, Anesthesia billing is done on a time-based schedule rather than flat fees, which makes billing and managing them complicated. It requires an experienced hand that’s documented complexities before, specially when an EHR Software is involved. With our extensive EHR experience, we can handle a variety of different anesthesia based modifiers to help you focus on your practice. Below are some of those modifiers:

ModifierDescription
AAAnesthesia services performed personally by an anesthesiologist.
ADMedical supervision by a physician: more than four concurrent anesthesia procedures.
QKMedical direction of two, three, or four concurrent anesthesia procedures involving qualified individuals.
QSMonitored anesthesia care service.
QXCRNA service with medical direction by a physician.
QYMedical direction of one certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA) by an anesthesiologist.
QZCRNA service without medical direction by a physician.
G8Monitored anesthesia care (MAC) for deep complex, complicated, or markedly invasive surgical procedure.
G9Monitored anesthesia care for a patient who has a history of severe cardiopulmonary condition.
23Unusual Anesthesia: Occasionally, a procedure that usually does not require anesthesia services may require anesthesia due to unusual patient circumstances. This modifier is used in such cases.

Our Medical Billing Process

Efficient anesthesiology medical billing involves a multi-step process that begins before the surgery and continues through the postoperative period. It’s a complex procedure that we believe (with the help of our billers & coders) can help give a noticeable upturn in revenue. 

Detailed Documentation

SmartClinix medical billers, help your clinic get accurate pre procedure patient information including the patient’s medical history, including any pre-existing conditions, allergies, and previous surgeries. We also help  record the findings from the physical examination, such as the patient’s vital signs, respiratory function, and overall fitness for anesthesia. Additionally, any relevant test results, such as blood work or imaging studies, must be documented. 

We help keep these important details fully documented for before, after and post op surgery care, so that you’re properly reimbursed for your expertise. 

Extensive Anesthesia Code Knowledge 

Coding, specifically anesthesia coding, is the process of assigning specific codes to procedures and services provided during anesthesia administration. These codes not only help in identifying the type of anesthesia administered but also determine the complexity of the procedure and the patient’s physical status.

Our Anesthesia coders utilize the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes, which are a standardized set of codes developed and maintained by the American Medical Association (AMA). These codes provide a uniform language for reporting medical procedures and services. Accurate coding ensures that healthcare providers are reimbursed appropriately for the services they provide.

Coding Errors We Help Avoid

While accurate coding is crucial, it is equally important to avoid common coding errors that can lead to claim denials and financial losses. The following are 

This can occur when the assigned code does not accurately reflect the type of anesthesia administered or the complexity of the procedure. It is essential to carefully review the documentation and select the appropriate codes.

Insufficient information about the anesthesia administration can lead to claim denials or delays in reimbursement. We at SmartClinix help ensure that their documentation includes all relevant details, such as the type of anesthesia, the duration of the procedure, and any additional procedures performed.

It is important to provide adequate documentation to support the codes assigned. This includes documenting any pre-existing medical conditions, any complications or adverse reactions during the anesthesia administration, and any additional procedures performed during the surgery, which we can help with.

To avoid these common coding errors, it is crucial to stay updated with the latest coding guidelines and regulations. The field of medical coding is constantly evolving, and it is essential to stay informed about any changes or updates that may impact anesthesia coding. Seeking professional assistance, such as consulting with certified medical coders or attending coding workshops, can also be beneficial in ensuring accurate coding and maximizing reimbursement.
