Important Information about billing for anesthesia services

Effective Feb. 5, 2021, Pacific Anesthesia is out of network with Kaiser. Patients with Kaiser insurance may incur larger out-of-pocket expenses than at a hospital that uses in-network anesthesiologists. 

Kaiser patients who are expecting to receive anesthesia services should contact Pacific Anesthesia and their insurance company to determine their out-of-pocket expenses. 

  • Pacific Anesthesia: 888-900-3788
  • Insurance company: please refer to the phone number on your insurance card

Outside physician groups, such as Pacific Anesthesia, bill separately from Swedish.

You should confirm with your insurance provider that the doctor you select participates with your insurance plan.
