Patient Care

 

Message to Patients

The Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative Care and Pain Medicine / NYU Anesthesia Associates welcomes you. We wish to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Your anesthesiologist is a member of this department. A member of our anesthesia team will discuss with you the best medication options to receive during your surgery or procedure.

Our anesthesiologists participate in the following

  • Medicare
  • Medicaid
  • Many other health care plans

You can view the list of all our participating health care plans by following these steps:

For more information, you can also

  • Call us at 1-877-648-2964 if you have any questions about our participating health care plans.  
  • Please call us before your surgery or procedure date.  Our office hours are Monday-Friday from 8 am to 7 pm. Saturday and Sunday our hours are from 9 am to 5 pm.

Important Reminders

  • Our anesthesiologists participate in every health care plan accepted at NYU Langone.
  • Please contact your health care plan a few days before your surgery or procedure to find out your anesthesia coverage.
  • You will need to cover any balance for which your health care plan has determined you are responsible.  This is whether we participate with them or not. These charges may be your co-insurance, deductible or co-pay amounts.
  • Before your surgery or procedure, your surgeon may request that you see an anesthesiologist or nurse practitioner (NP) in the Pre-Admission Testing (PAT) Center. After your surgery or procedure, another anesthesiologist or NP may visit you. They will manage any pain and/or discomfort you may have. You may receive bills for these services, as well.

We would like your experience at NYU Langone to be a positive one.
We hope to continue to be your partner in care.
