Aetna Anesthesia Reimbursement Policy

Aetna's anesthesia payment policies are posted here as a convenience to ASA members, and not because ASA endorses the Aetna policies as a whole. Aetna policies have been changing throughout 2002. We have persuaded Aetna to make some modifications but there are still areas of disagreement. The company has agreed to let ASA make their policies available for members' use in discussions with Aetna network representatives who may not be up to date themselves.
