Unique Challenges for Anesthesiology Services
Since most patients only meet with their anesthesiologist on the day of surgery, they are often unaware there is a separate charge for this service--and they may not even recognize the provider's name. PatientPay works with your central billing office to provide bills that clearly state what a patient owes and why.

Ways to Improve Anesthesiology Patient Payments
Make Amount Due Crystal Clear (and Aligned with the EOB)
Patients who understand their charges pay more quickly and won't burden your staff with unnecessary communication. A simple and effective bill allows patients to understand what insurance has, or hasn't paid. It may seem simple, but designing a simple anesthesiology bill takes expertise and experience--just what PatientPay offers.
Ask for Email Address and Mobile Phone Number
Patients of all ages and demographics are now comfortable providing email address and mobile phone number to healthcare providers. By having direct, timely access to patients--you can deliver a bill that will be seen and acted on. In a recent survey, 79% of patients were comfortable providing their email address for billing and communication purposes!
Patient Payment Plans that Work
Flexible payment options meet internal guidelines and use data analytics to determine a patient's ability to pay--making for smarter payment plans that patients are more likely to comply with.
Enhanced Patient Experience
The patient experience extends long after they leave the surgery center. Bills clearly state what they owe to your anesthesiology group and why--which helps to boost patient satisfaction scores.
