Referral to Specialists
CMP Providers offer a wide range of medical services. However, for more extensive care, you may be referred to a specialist. For HMO patients, a referral is necessary for specialty providers. Your provider’s staff will schedule an appointment for you with the specialist and contact you with the date and time.
A routine referral is processed within 7-10 working days. If you have not heard from our office within 10 working days, please contact us. If you require more urgent attention, your referral will be processed within 24 hours. Please, wait for the referral to be processed before seeking specialty care, prior authorization is often necessary. Without a referral, your insurance company may deny payment for treatment. The patient is responsible for payment of unauthorized treatment.
Medication refills are available by contacting your pharmacy. Please allow 48 hours for prescription refills to be completed.
