I am not sure if the insurance would pay for both surgeries. At the facility that I work, we will bill only the portion of the non elective surgery to the insurance. Ex. If the total time combined is 3 hours. Usually the surgeon for the elective surgery knows how long his time will take, say 2 hours. We will then only bill the insurance for 1 hour of anesthesia time and the 1 hour it takes the other surgery to perform his /her surgery. The rest is up to the patient to pay.
Hope this helps.
