What if SSAA does not participate in my insurance plan?
As a courtesy to you, we will file your claim. Not all insurance plans pay the same benefits or apply the same deductible; therefore there may be a balance due after the insurance company has paid SSAA. Since the insurance contract is an agreement between the patient and his/her insurance company, any unpaid balance will remain the responsibility of the patient.

Why did I receive two bills for anesthesia?
Every patient is charged professional services rendered by the doctors and CRNAs of SSAA. South Shore Hospital also bills each patient for anesthesia-related supplies and medications.
