Hi,.This, although possibly done as a courtesy by some docors, is typically the responsibility of the patient..As a matter of fact, if you go to just about any hospital or practice's web site you'll see a statement that looks something like this:."Although XXXX does not require a referral for some specialty services, some insurance providers require referrals. Please check with your insurance provider prior to requesting an appointment.".MUCH more common for the patient to make the appointment ... The referral is just something that may be required for a service to be covered..Have I understood your question correctly?.Let me know..Lane.
