You will receive a separate anesthesia bill. The anesthesia services are not included in the Surgical Center fee. The University Anesthesia Group is contracted with most insurance carriers and its rates are well accepted in the area. The Anesthesia Billing Department will accommodate the patient by first billing the insurance company. However, any balance that is not covered by the insurance company will have to be met by the patient. There may be certain procedures where the anesthesia fee will be collected in advance. Copayments, deductibles, etc. may also be collected in advance of the surgery.
