Referrals

Most major health insurance carriers require participants to obtain a referral authorization from his/her primary care physician (PCP) before seeking care in a specialist's office. You may be required to see your physician before your insurance will authorize it.

It is the patient's responsibility to notify San Diego Medical Group of a referral  request prior to seeing a specialist for medical care. If your plan is an HMO product, please call the office to request a referral.If you are unsure whether your plan requires referrals, please check with your insurance company directly.

Most referrals can and will be processed within 5-7 business days.
