I went to go see my doctor the other day for a couple things and one of them was to ask about getting a referral to see an eye doctor. She told me that I'd have to wait for my insurance to come back and approve my coverage for the visit I just did and then I'd have to call back to get the. Number to the doctor. I was kinda upset cause she kinda just left me hanging. Skis this correct or cani just call and get the number anyways?
If you are going just for glasses or contacts then you do not need authorization first just go get the exam done. If you are going to see a specialist because of a problem then your pcm will have to put referral, and you will have to wait till you get the auth from tricare.
