Referral is the process of sending a patient to another practitioner (ex. Specialist) for a health care service that the referring source believes is necessary but is not prepared or qualified to provide.
When appropriate, Student/ Employee Health Services Providers may refer you to a specialist if necessary for your care.
For most, but not all, HMO plans, you’ll need a referral from your primary care provider before you can see any other health care professional (except in an emergency). If your plan requires a referral and you don’t get one first, your insurance won’t cover the cost to see the specialist.
Most insurance plans require that you see a specialist within the network; if you go outside your network, you may be responsible for the bill.
It is important that you verify your coverage prior to selecting your sub-specialist. Student /Employee Health Services will provide you with recommendations for referrals.
