Referral not required for patients to book an appointment, however for insurance reimbursement, many plans require a physician referral.

By faxing a referral, you help ensure your patients will get the insurance coverage they are entitled to per the affordable care act. It also connects the dots for sleep deprived, worried parents, allowing us to reach out the them to schedule if self-scheduling has fallen off their long to-do list.
