As a member of an HMO, it is mandatory that you get a referral from your Primary Care Physician to see a specialist and have x-rays. The Insurance Company Will Not Pay for The Visit Without a Referral. Please call your primary care physician in advance to ask for a referral. If possible, try to get a referral for multiple visits so you do not have to repeat this process every time you come to the office. If a referral has not been obtained and the claim is denied, you will be responsible for payment in full.
It is your responsibility to verify benefits, know your deductible amounts, and confirm that the doctor is a member of your plan.
