All of our providers maintain current licensure and national certification. They are all certified in Basic Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support. The entire staff of Georgia Anesthesia demonstrates a high moral character and standards that will not be compromised.
Georgia Anesthesia has experience with the Joint Commission, Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, and Medicare protocols and inspections. We are proud to be teamed with Sentry Anesthesia Management which provides our management and billing services. We participate in most managed care plans in order to minimize the financial burden for patients. These in network contracts include but are not limited to Aetna, Cigna, BCBS, Coventry, UHC, Medicare, Medicaid/Peachstate/Wellcare, Humana and Champus along with subsidiary contracts.
We maintain strict compliance with all Federal and State regulatory and legislative rules and regulations. Anesthesia services arrangements in ASCs have come under close scrutiny in advisory opinions posted June 2012 (No. 12-06) and November 2013 (No. 13-15) by the HHS Office of the Inspector General (HHS OIG). These opinions focus on prohibited self-referral and kickback arrangements that should alert us all. We respect these opinions and will avoid arrangements that would jeopardize your practice or ours. We will ensure compliance, according to the HHS OIG opinion statements.
