Children and adolescents often require the services of other specialists and subspecialists. Many insurance companies require our providers to make a referral to any specialist your child may need to see.
After you have made an appointment with a specialist that
participates with your insurance, you will want to check your identification
card or member booklet as to whether a referral number is needed for
the specialist visit. If your insurance company does indeed require a
written referral or referral number, please contact our office 48 hours
prior to your specialist appointment time.
The information you will want to have when you call:
- Patient name (please spell last name)
- Patient date of birth
- Insurance company name and identification number
- Specialist name (please spell last name)
- Specialist phone/fax number
- Diagnosis (reason for specialist visit)
- Appointment date and time
This process will prevent any failure of an insurance company to provide the benefit and the payment for the specialist visit.
