Most managed care companies require prior authorizations for special testing and/or referrals to other specialists.
Our physicians' extensive training enables them to meet the vast majority of your healthcare needs. Should a specialist referral be necessary, your family physician will arrange for the best care suited to your particular medical needs and will continue to remain a part of the care team every step of the way.
If a physician must refer you to a specialist for further evaluation, authorization must be obtained through your insurance carrier. Authorizations are valid for the specific diagnosis and the time period indicated and must be handled prior to visiting the specialist. Retro authorization is invalid.
