If your insurance requires a referral in order for them to cover a visit or a test, you must be seen by your primary care provider first.
Referrals may need to be “renewed” after three or more months.
Retroactive referrals are generally not accepted by insurance companies.
Referrals are generally done in our office and may take several days to complete, unless it is very urgent.
IMPORTANT: If a specialist suggests you see another specialist, check back with our office first! Many times, your insurance company will only pay if the referral is from your primary care provider. Please tell us before you see the second specialist!
