After Your Stay

We want to ensure your transition from Gwinnett Medical Center to your home is as smooth as possible. These are just a few of the measures we’ve put in place. After you leave, we encourage you to call us with any questions at 678-312-4321.
 
Discharge
We want to see you get home as soon as possible. That’s why, from the minute you enter Gwinnett Medical Center, our team of doctors, specialists and nurses establish a plan of treatment. Throughout your stay, they discuss your progress and formulate a plan for your discharge.

Before your discharge, we will:

  • Explain any medications to you or your care provider, usually a family member.
  • Set any follow-up appointments, if necessary.
  • Arrange home care services.
  • Coordinate transfer to another facility, if you need it.
  • Forward information on your treatment and condition to your referring physician.

We ask that you make necessary transportation arrangements in advance to ensure a timely departure.

Prescriptions
After your discharge, chances are you will have a prescription that needs to be filled. Make sure you locate your health insurance card prior to discharge.

Billing
If you are covered by health insurance, Gwinnett Medical Center will submit a claim to your insurance provider.
 
If you are a member of a managed care plan, your plan may require that services be authorized by your primary care physician or by the plan. You may need a referral authorization in order to receive care at the Medical Center.

You may also be responsible for a co-payment.

If you do not have health insurance, we will bill you directly. If paying your Medical Center bill presents a serious financial hardship, please call us at 678-312-5600.
