The Anesthesiologists of LIA are not employed directly by the institutions where we practice. Therefore you may receive a separate bill for anesthesia services after your procedure. We participate and are in-network with most major health insurance carriers in the area and it is our goal to reach 100% in-network participation. Establishing fair in-network contracts and receiving agreed upon payments from health insurance carriers can be a lengthy and difficult process through which we continue actively to work. We seek your understanding, cooperation and assistance to manage the requirements and actions of your insurance companies and our billing office is committed to assisting you wherever possible. Our number one concern is providing excellent patient care and we strive everyday to clearly demonstrate the value of our services.

Please review the note from our billing office below for important reminders regarding your bill.

A Note From the Billing Office:

Dear Patient / Parent,

Thank you for choosing a Catholic Health System (CHS) hospital for your upcoming procedure.  The physicians of Long Island Anesthesiologists, PLLC will be providing your anesthesia services.  We would like to assist you by providing the following important information related to charges you may receive.

Although we participate with many insurance plans, we may not participate or be in-network with yours.  To avoid billing errors or inappropriate cost to you please follow these guidelines:

If we do not participate with your insurance plan, correspondence and/or payments may be sent directly to you from the insurance company.  In the event that you receive information or payment we ask that you forward this to our office as soon as possible.  Be sure to endorse the back of the check and don’t forget to include the explanation of this payment (sometimes referred to as the Explanation of Benefits (EOB) in your insurance documents), so that you may be credited for the proper amount.

Please remember that you are responsible for the legal co-pay and/or deductible as required by law and your policy provisions.  Our billing department will work with you to make sure that you are not asked to pay more than your policy limits dictate.

Please note that if you receive information or payments and fail to forward it to our office, it may result in additional cost to you.

We will make every effort to ensure that your experience with us is satisfactory. Thank you in advance for your trust and cooperation.  If you have any questions or concerns, we are happy to assist you.  Please direct all calls to the billing office at 888-850-2598 during business hours Monday-Friday 9:00AM to 5:00PM.

Please send all payments to:
PO Box 95000 LB 7595
