Did you know? How to get a referral to a specialist- fast!

When you need to see a specialist who is not on THIPA’s self-referral list, you’ll need a referral from your primary care physician. Get one by scheduling a visit with your primary care physician and asking for a referral.

Your primary care physician issues the referral request and sends it to THIPA for approval. It is your primary care physician’s responsibility to let you know that your referral has been approved (or in some rare instances denied).

If you do not hear from your primary care physician’s office within 48 hours of a referral request, call them and ask about the status of your referral. If they have not received an authorization from THIPA, then call Senior Member Services Toll-Free at 1-866-568-4472.
