Medical and Dental Insurance
Your insurance will be billed for Dental services, Anesthesia, and Wake Med Outpatient Services. All three are separate entities.
It’s the patient’s responsibility to verify Anesthesia, and Wake Med Outpatient services fee structures. Please note we can’t schedule your appointment until you have had your insurance verified or made payment arrangements.
Dentistry: NCHD can verify your dental insurance before the procedure.
In certain cases NCHD will have to bill you after the visit is completed. This happens when
an exam and diagnosis cant be made before the procedure date.
American Anesthesia will verify and bill your medical insurance when NCHD sends in the OR Case Request to WakeMed.
If you have specific questions about your Anesthesia costs please call American Anesthesia at 919-873-9533.
The CPT Code for the procedure is 41899 and the ASA code is 00-170.
The anticipated procedure time is 2-3 hours.
Wake Med Outpatient services: Please call the estimate line at 919-350-7808. Leave a message and they will call back within 48 hours. In your message please tell them it’s for a dental procedure. Wake Med will send your insurance information to American Anesthesia.
