    • Your PCP will give you a referral to see a specialist based on the continued care needed. We will locate a specialist within your health network and contact you to provide the details of your referral once it has been approved.
  • What is prior authorization?
    • For some types of care, your PCP will need to ask your insurance for permission, or prior authorization, before you can be referred to a specialist. Your insurance must make sure that the care is medically necessary/needed before it can be approved.
  • How long does prior authorization take?
    • Typically, your insurance will decide on pre-authorizations within 10 business days. In urgent cases, your insurance will make an expedited decision within 48-72 hours.
  • What happens if a referral request is denied?
    • Your insurance will send you a Notice of Action (NOA) letter, which will tell you how to file an appeal if you do not agree with the decision. Your PCP will discuss treatment options at your next appointment.
