You must have an email address on file to make an online payment. Please call 715-848-2792 to provide an email address if one is not on file.
Our practice utilizes a team care approach on many cases, which incorporates a Board-Eligible or Board Certified Physician Anesthesiologist specializing in providing safe anesthesia care and a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA), a specialized area of nursing. Both are an integral part of your anesthetic care. We bill for both the physician and CRNA in accordance with industry standards. You will receive a separate bill from the hospital or ambulatory surgery center for anesthesia related supplies.
We will bill all insurance companies and then provide a statement of your remaining financial responsibilities. We accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover credit cards. For questions regarding your bill or insurance inquiries, please call us at 715-848-2792 or FAX 715-848-2884.
As a courtesy, we file a claim(s) directly to your insurance company. Remember your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance carrier and that you are ultimately responsible for all charges incurred. If you do not provide insurance information or inaccurate insurance information at the time of service, your claim may be denied for timely filing and the balance may be your responsibility to pay. Please be sure to inform us of all relevant insurance coverages including secondary or tertiary insurance to CWA.
You are responsible for co-payments, deductible, non-covered services and other health insurance plan limitations. We will bill you any balance due after your insurance company has paid your claim. There may be a delay if your insurance company has paid us incorrectly, and we have resubmitted your claim for a corrected payment and allowance determination.
All accounts are payable within 30 days after you receive your first statement. If you are unable to make payment in full, please contact us at 715-848-2792 to set up a payment plan.
