What if I Need to See a Special Doctor (Specialist)?

Your PCP might want you to see a special doctor (specialist) for certain health care needs. While your PCP can take care of most of your health care needs, sometimes they will want you to see a specialist for your care. A specialist has received training and has more experience taking care of certain diseases, illnesses and injuries. UnitedHealthcare Community Plan has many specialists who will work with you and your PCP to care for your needs.

What is a referral? Do I need a referral to see a specialist?

Your PCP will talk to you about your needs and will help make plans for you to see the specialist that can provide the best care for you, including providing a referral if the specialist asks for one. A referral is a special kind of agreement between doctors that says the specialist will treat you. UnitedHealthcare Community Plan does not require referrals for you to see a specialist. You can see any specialist with or without a referral.

•       Emergency Services.

•       OB/GYN care.

•       Behavioral Health Services.

•       Routine Vision Services.
