The No Surprises Act (NSA) is a federal law that protects individuals from unexpected medical bills when they receive (for example) non-emergency services from an out-of-network practitioner (such as an anesthesiologist) at in-network facility. Under the NSA, health care professionals must give patients who don’t have insurance, or who are not using insurance, an estimate (called a “Good Faith Estimate”) of their bill for medical items and services. A “Good Faith Estimate” explains how much the individual’s medical care will cost.

Effective January 1, 2023, please contact your healthcare professional (surgeon or facility) for a Good Faith Estimate of your anesthesia medical items and services. Your healthcare practitioner will contact OAG directly to get the information needed for your Good Faith Estimate and will include it in their Good Faith Estimate.

If you need an OAG Good Faith Estimate prior to January 1, 2023, please read about our Cost Estimates.

You may contact our patient billing office at (503) 972-7103 to let us know if your billed amount is higher than your Good Faith Estimate. We will review your bill and Good Faith Estimate to determine the reason for the difference. Depending on the reason, you can ask us to update the bill to match the Good Faith Estimate, ask about setting up a payment arrangement, or ask if there is financial assistance available.

You can learn more about your rights to a Good Faith Estimate or the PPDR by visiting, emailing, or calling 1-800-985-3059.

One bill, from the medical facility where you had your procedure, is for use of their facility. This can include the anesthetic medicines, gases, and monitoring equipment used in your procedure.

Your bill from OAG is for the professional services of your anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist.

Under your health plan you may be responsible for certain cost-sharing amounts, including co-payments and deductibles. Your OAG bill reflects what you owe after you apply your insurer's share of the cost.

If you have secondary insurance coverage, be sure to provide that information to us so that we can submit a claim on your behalf.

We understand that expenses associated with medical care can be overwhelming. Once you receive your first statement, please contact us to discuss your options.

You can pay online or by phone using Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover. We also accept payment by check or money order. Learn how and where to pay your bill on the Pay My Bill page.
