Managed Care Referral

Many emergency patients get their medical insurance through an HMO or managed care plan. Your illness or injury may not be serious or need treatment right away. If this is true, you may be asked to go to your primary caregiver's clinic to be treated. A medical screening exam should be done to be sure it is safe for you to travel to your caregiver's office. Your condition does not seem to be unstable. Your caregiver's office has the needed people and equipment to treat your problem. Call your caregiver if you have questions about your medical problem or your insurance coverage.
