Common Questions About Medical Specialists

What is a referral and why is it needed?
Due to the complexity of your condition, a “referral” is required from your primary care physician (PCP). Many insurance plans require a referral before services can be provided so payment can be submitted to our specialists. Your PCP can verify if a referral is required.

Is there a co-pay or charge for my visit?
Co-pays are determined by your health plan. All co-pays are required to be paid at the time of your visit. Co-pays are not billed. Please contact your health plan for more information.

I don’t have insurance or the money to pay. How can I be seen?
Patients can apply for our financial assistance program depending on financial need. A co-pay is required for each visit, and some services may not qualify under the program.

Do you offer transportation?
Yes, transportation services through Touchette are available to patients within our service area. The program is free to patients who need rides to medical appointments, wellness visits and health education programs.
