Specialists and Referral Forms

If you need to see a specialist, your Primary Care Provider (PCP) will make the arrangements. You must have a Referral to see a participating specialist. Your PCP will give you a paper Referral Form or a script with the specialist’s name and phone number.

You do not need a referral for:

  • Routine gynecological care
  • Mammogram
  • Obstetrical care
  • Routine eye examination
  • Dental care
  • Emergency room care

If you have a condition that needs ongoing care from a specialist, your PCP can give you a “standing referral.” This allows you to go to your specialist as often as necessary for the specialist to treat your medical condition. The specialist may also be able to act as your PCP and specialty care provider.
