You Can See A Specialist Without A Referral. Here’s How...

One of the most valuable benefits you get as a member of THIPA is our free Senior Self-Referral Program.

In other provider networks, you have to make an appointment with your primary care doctor and pay a co-payment to get a referral to see a specialist. Sometimes it can take a month or more. But not as a THIPA member.

We trust our members to know what specialty services they need. Therefore, you can make appointments immediately with 70 different specialists without a referral from your primary care doctor.

All you have to do is pick up the phone and call for an appointment with any THIPA specialist in:

  • Cardiology
  • Care Management
  • Dermatology
  • Gastroenterology
  • OB & Gynecology
  • Podiatry
  • Pulmonology
  • Urology

If you move, contact your health plan to formally change your address. This is very important.

For a complete list of all 258 specialists in the THIPA network, including those in the Senior Self-Referral Program, call your Senior Member Services Team or view them online.

Want a specialist in a specialty not listed in the Senior Self-Referral Program? Your Senior Member Services Team can also help you get a referral from your primary care doctor right away, usually within 24 hours.
