They ensure that any necessary administrative clearance for the surgery to proceed is obtained. Additionally, surgical coordinators work with the patients insurance company to obtain all necessary documents and authorizations for payment; they also work directly with the patient, answering questions, scheduling appointments, confirming the schedule, and determining payment methods, sending medication prescription electronically, filing and pulling charts, performing general office duties, and other job duties assigned.
