Please keep the following policies in mind if your child is referred to a specialist:
- If you are enrolled in a managed care plan (i.e. HMO), you most likely will require a referral from our office before seeing a specialist, being sent for labs, or getting x-rays or other tests. Please allow five business days for our office to process your request.
- It is your responsibility to know if a written referral or authorization is required to see a specialist, whether pre-authorization is required prior to a procedure, and what services are covered.
- It is your responsibility to know if a selected specialist participates in your insurance plan.
- If you receive care at any referred facility, you and your insurance company will be responsible for any fees or costs incurred.
