Primary care referrals mean you're not alone
Primary care providers (PCP) help you make important decisions, and they can coordinate your care with your entire healthcare team. If you have one of our BlueCHiP plans, your PCP will coordinate referrals as needed when you see a specialist, have a test, and receive some other services.
Some important covered services do not require a referral, including*:
- Mental health and substance use services
- Emergency and urgent care services
- Retail health clinics
- Speech therapy
- Vision office visits
Other services will require a referral, such as*:
- Allergy office visit
- Dermatology office visit
- Occupational therapy
- Physical therapy
