Revenue Cycle Services for Anesthesia Providers
Trajectory aims to ensure you are paid every appropriate penny for the anesthesia services you provide, and are paid in a timely manner.
Anesthesia providers have specific revenue cycle challenges that don’t affect other specialists in the same way. Individual contracts with payors—each with different reimbursement amounts and payment deadlines—mean multiple points of potential error. Payors consistently underpay or don’t pay on time. Patients typically receive their anesthesia bills separately from other associated bills, and they often delay payment, unsure of what they owe.
Trajectory has a proven track record of helping anesthesia providers:
Reduce AR days
Increase percent of charges collected
Increase self-pay collections
We have a deep understanding of anesthesia practices and services.
Our multi-specialty background gives us a much better understanding of the wide variety of services anesthesia providers offer. We also have dedicated coders and billers with strong backgrounds in anesthesia, who understand the nuances. We understand which services typically have add-on codes and know when something might be missing from documentation.

Increased Collections and Reduced AR Days Through Quality, Documentation, and a Strategic Approach
We use a multi-pronged approach to make sure you are getting paid what you should and to speed up your reimbursement time. Through our expertise, we can improve your entire AR process.
QA & Denial Prevention
Most denials are due to clerical errors such as lack of authorization, wrong patient ID, failed NCCI edits, etc. As most patients do not need anesthesia services often, it is not unusual for a billing service to have outdated patient insurance information on file, which leads to denials that delay payment.
We put every claim through a stringent QA process to reduce error rates, decrease denials and days in AR, and improve your collections. Our experienced staff is hired with the expectation of a less than 1% error rate.
Trajectory utilizes only certified coders based in the United States. We do not ship our coding overseas, nor do we employ 1099 laborers. All of our coding is done by coders fully employed and vested in Trajectory and our clients’ success. This allows our clients to get to know the team working on their project, and the peace of mind that not only is work getting done right, it’s getting done by people they have access to and can discuss issues with.
Understanding Your Top-Billed Codes
We identify and review your top utilized codes to determine which ones drive cash. By understanding your most-billed codes and how they impact your practice, we can recommend ways to improve your metrics. Addressing top codes can also help prevent recurring problems that hurt your bottom line.
All of our coders are trained in ICD-10.
