Billing Questions


Tacoma Anesthesia Associates is the hospital-based anesthesia group at Tacoma General and Mary Bridge Children's Hospitals. We will be providing anesthesia services for your upcoming procedure. We would like to take this opportunity to make you aware that while we work at Tacoma General and Mary Bridge, anesthesia services are separate from the hospital and surgeon charges. Therefore, you will receive a separate billing for your anesthesia care.

Additionally, our anesthesia group, the hospitals, and/or other health care providers (e.g. your surgeon) do not always participate with the same insurance companies. As such, our group may be considered out of network with some insurance companies.

You should contact your insurance carrier directly to verify if Tacoma Anesthesia Associates participates with your insurance plan.

Having this additional information will make the financial aspect of your procedure more efficient. However, as always, the main goal of our anesthesia group is to provide high quality, cost effective health care. We are dedicated to our patients and their care.

If you require additional assistance, please contact our billing office.

If you wish to contact the hospital's billing office, they may be reached at 253-459-7956 for local calls or toll free 800-919-1936 for out of area calls.
