BILLING FAQ

Useful information for G2 patients:

We are a Physician-Only group of anesthesiologists and our services are processed separately from your facility bill. Our physician anesthesiologists participate with all major insurance carriers and will bill your insurance company directly on your behalf.

When can I expect my first bill from G2?

Generally, insurance companies do not respond to claims for 60 days or more! Sometimes the insurer may request more information from us in order to process the claim. The billing cycle then restarts and may repeat itself several times. As a result, by the time the insurer calculates your balance, it may be more than four or five months after the date of service before you receive a bill from us. We focus on patients first, then patience.

I have insurance, why did G2 send me a bill?

In many instances, your policy will have a deductible, copay, or co-insurance you are responsible for. In the unlikely event we do not participate with your insurance company and they are unresponsive to our request for payment, we may request you intervene with the insurer to resolve your unpaid bill. Sometimes your voice matters the most.

I received a check from my insurance company, what should I do?

Deposit the check into your personal account and
pay the full amount due to G2 Anesthesia. This amount includes the amount your insurance company sent you plus your portion of responsibility which may include coinsurance, copay, and/or deductible.

In addition to the administration of anesthesia, G2 doctors may also perform other services to patients as they undergo anesthesia. These other services include specialized monitoring techniques and pain management nerve blocks.

Will I receive bills from other entities?

The hospital or surgery center will send you a bill for the facility services. You will also receive a bill from your surgeon. If you have certain tests or procedures, you may also receive separate bills for services such as: radiology, pathology, cardiology or other physician services.
