Types of Referrals
Comes from your primary care provider (PCP) or specialist. It allows us to work with your PCP to understand your child’s health care needs, gather health records and determine the best specialty care for your child. Many of our clinics require a provider referral.
Insurance referral (pre-authorization)
Comes from your insurance company. They may require a pre-authorization before we can schedule an appointment or testing for your child.
For questions about insurance benefits and authorization requirements, call your insurance company. Our Insurance Services Department will contact you, once your appointment is scheduled, if there is a problem.
