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
  • Chiropractic
  • Speech therapy
  • Vision office visits

Other services will require a referral, such as*:

  • Allergy office visit
  • Dermatology office visit
  • Occupational therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Podiatry office visit
  • Specialist office visit

*This is not a complete list. For more important information regarding referrals, view your plan's subscriber agreement or your online account. If you still have questions, just ask us.
