I am an anesthesiologist and I currently render services on behalf of an ASC. Can the non-anesthesiologist owners of the ASC where I render services share in the revenue generated by me?


Maybe. In light of the OIG opinion rendered 5/25/12 (OIG Advisory Opinion 12-06), any arrangement between an anesthesiologist and an ambulatory surgery center (ASC) (or any other provider) must be analyzed in the context of the general prohibitions under New York and Federal law against kickbacks to ensure that such arrangements are compliant and minimize risk.

AG’s Office Begins Enforcing the Surprise Bill Law

This past Spring, the Surprise Bill Law took effect in New York State, imposing various disclosure and billing requirements on out-of-network providers and insurance companies. The aim of the law is to protect consumers from “surprise” or emergency out-of-network medical bills. Patients who receive surprise bills are to be held harmless, with the exception of their usual in-network co-pays and deductibles. Out-of-network providers and insurance companies are required to resolve any fee disputes in an arbitration-style format.
