Welcome to Seascape Surgery Center
We are fully licensed by the state of Florida, The Joint Commission accredited and are Medicare certified. The physicians and staff at Seascape Surgery Center are committed to providing the highest quality of medical care. Our goal is to provide the best care possible by meeting and exceeding standards for high-quality healthcare.
Payment Bundle Resources
Information on payments made to the facility for defined bundles of services and procedures is available at https://pricing.floridahealthfinder.gov. The service bundle information is a non-personalized estimate of costs that may be incurred by the patient for anticipated services, and actual costs will be based on services actually provided to the patient. The patient can request a personalized estimate from the Center at any time before or after the procedure is performed. Patients should also contact the health care practitioners anticipated to provide services to the patient while in the center regarding a personalized estimate, billing practices and participation with patient’s insurance provider or HMO as the practitioners may not participate with the same insurers or HMO as the center.
Quality measures and statistics related to ASC’s can be found on the State of Florida’s Agency for Healthcare Administration website.

Estimates and Information
Seascape Surgery Center (SSC) is committed to providing meaningful information to our patients related to financial obligations for healthcare services. The best way for patients to determine their out-of-pocket costs in advance of their visit is to contact their insurance company. However, a patient may request an estimate of anticipated charges for non-emergency care from the Center.
In order for the SSC to provide prospective patients with a good faith estimate, your physician’s office must have already scheduled your surgery or procedure with the center. Upon request and as required by Florida Law, SSC will provide to prospective patients an estimate of gross charges, before any adjustment for your healthcare plans or self-pay discounts in writing within seven (7) business days. To request an estimate, please contact us at 813-977-2040 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please contact our facility’s billing office for further information on our policies at 813-977-2040. Surgeons, anesthesiologists, and other service providers (such as pathologists or laboratories) bill for their services separately from the surgery center and may offer their own financial assistance program—please contact them for further information regarding their services.
Seascape Surgery Center does not currently have a charity care policy.
As a courtesy to our patients, we will file an insurance claim on behalf of the patient to his/her insurance plan. A patient is expected to respond to his/her insurance plan’s request for information timely, as needed, to minimize processing delays with the claim.
Patients are expected to pay their financial obligations in a timely manner including the estimated portion by the day services are received, and any remaining portion upon finalization of the claim by the payer. Unpaid claims by the payer may result in the account’s outstanding balance being fully transferred to the patient for collection.
If needed, the center will attempt to reach a patient by any method available to us to secure payment on the outstanding balance utilizing internal and external resources. If the account becomes delinquent, it may be placed with an attorney or agency for collection in which their fees and expenses may be the obligation of the patient.
