So I got my wisdom teeth out. I asked for some sedation for the procedure because all 4 of my teeth were impacted, and the dentist charged me $500 for "monitored sedation" for giving me some PO benzos. Can they really charge you money to monitor you while also doing the surgery at the same time? It kinda seems like double billing. Not to mention, she didn't have me on any monitoring equipment, and she had absolutely no airway or resuscitation equipment around anywhere if there was a complication. My insurance covers the surgery but not the anesthesia. Should I pay the $500 bill or dispute it? What do you guys think?
