Billing and Insurance Information

Thank you for choosing Gulf Coast Surgery Center. We strive to make your experience a pleasant and efficient one.

With that in mind, we like to inform our patients of their financial obligations before surgery to avoid surprises or misunderstandings.

Gulf Coast Surgery Center collects any co-payments, unmet deductibles, and co-insurance amounts on the day of surgery. Please note that co-insurance amounts collected are an estimate; your insurance company will determine your total financial obligation and appear on the benefits explanation. If our estimated amount is less, we will bill you the difference. If our estimated amount is more than that, we will refund you the difference.

We encourage you to contact your surgeon, anesthesia group, and insurance company if you have any questions about your financial obligations. In addition, please make sure your authorization/pre-certification for your surgery is on file before the surgery.

You will be receiving a bill from:

Gulf Coast Surgery Center

If you do not have insurance, you are responsible for the entire surgeon, facility, and anesthesia fees. You'll need to make a separate payment with each entity. The surgery center cannot accept payment on behalf of another entity.

We will call you before surgery with the amount due on the day of surgery. Checks should be made payable to Gulf Coast Surgery Center. We accept cash, checks, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover. We will leave a message on your home phone to ensure you have this information. As a reminder, you are still responsible for any balance left by your insurance company(ies).

We hope this information helps you plan your visit to the surgery center. A discussion of financial matters can be an uncomfortable experience. Our goal is to reduce or eliminate any additional stress in this area.

If you have any financial questions or concerns, please feel free to call us at (985) 872-1661.
