Physician Billing

Physician billing is separate and independent from facility billing. You will be receiving statements from providers for physician services in addition to Bartlett Regional Hospital’s statement which covers the facility component.

Government and insurance regulations require that each entity send you a separate bill and collect payment independently.

Bartlett Employed Providers

Bartlett Surgery and Specialty Clinic

You will receive a bill from Bartlett Surgery and Specialty Clinic for services provided by hospitalists and/or surgeons. Please contact our office at 907-796-8794 if you have any questions or concerns.

This bill may include the following charges:

  • General Surgeon/Ophthalmologist Fees: Physicians that specialize in surgery, who evaluate patients and perform surgery.
  • Surgical Assistant Fees: Having a surgical assistant enhances the services for complicated cases and often decreases the surgical time. The charge for this service is submitted to your insurance company and is covered at a reduced rate. The difference between the charge and the reduced rate is adjusted off the balance.
  • Hospitalist Fees: Physicians who provide general medical care of hospitalized patients.

Important Information about Billing for Anesthesia Services

ALL OF THE ABOVE MENTIONED PROVIDERS ARE OUT OF NETWORK WITH ALL INSURANCES. PATIENTS MAY INCUR LARGER OUT-OF-POCKET EXPENSES THAN THE HOSPITAL THAT MIGHT BE IN-NETWORK DEPENDING ON INSURANCE. 

Patients who are expecting to receive anesthesia services should contact their insurance company to determine their out-of-pocket expenses and request that the service be processed as in-network as there are no in-network anesthesia providers within our region.

Patients with Blue Cross Blue Shield Federal Employees Program Insurance

As of July 22, 2012, Premera Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alaska for federal employees has changed how they issue payment for services provided by physicians who are not preferred providers. Currently, in Juneau, none of the anesthesia physicians are contracted with any commercial insurance(s).

In order to expedite payment we have filed a claim for you with the Federal Employees Program. Payment will be issued directly to you.

Blue Cross will notify us of issuance of payment to you, and the amount paid. This amount must be paid to our office IN FULL within 30 days of receipt. This portion is NOT eligible for any payment plans.

If you choose to forward the insurance check to our office, please write 'Pay to the order of (Provider Name)' and sign the check. Mail the check to 3260 Hospital Dr. Juneau, AK 99801.

If you should have questions about your claim please contact your insurance at (800) 562-1011.
