Do I Need a Referral to See an Orthopedic Physician?

Whether or not you need a referral to see an orthopedic physician depends on your insurance provider. Some insurance plans require a referral from your primary care physician or another healthcare provider before you can schedule an appointment with one of our orthopedic specialists. Others may allow you to seek orthopedic care directly without a referral. It’s best to check your insurance policy or contact your insurance provider to determine their specific requirements regarding referrals for orthopedic consultations.
