Do I need a referral from my primary care physician?

Most insurance companies Do Not require a referral. Just call the phone number on your insurance card to find out.

I received an explanation of benefits; is this my bill?​

No, this is not a bill. This letter is to inform you of the ammount a procedure, test, or treatment cost. This is often sent out to the patient when their insurance company is billed. Your insurance company has already determined your co-pay, deductable, and coverage.
