Does the anesthesiologist fee differ depending on the types of anesthesia used?
No. Your fees from the anesthesiologist are not based on the type of anesthesia used. Anesthesiology professional fees are charged based on the Relative Value Guide developed by the American Society of Anesthesiologists. Most major insurance companies accept this fee guide. However, the hospital fee related to anesthesia will vary with the drugs and supplies that are used.
