About

An approved referral (prior authorization) is required for:

  • All care outside of the Yale Health Center
  • Allergy Department
  • Dermatology
  • Diagnostic Imaging
  • Endoscopy
  • Infusion
  • Inpatient Care
  • Laboratory Services
  • Nutrition Counseling

You do not need a referral for:

  • Acute Care
  • Behavioral Health/Mental Health & Counseling Departments
  • Immunization
  • Obstetrics & Gynecology
  • Ophthalmology/Optometry Department
  • Screening mammograms
  • Skin Cancer Screening
  • Travel Department

A referral from your primary care provider (PCP) is the first step to receive authorization. A referral from your PCP does not guarantee authorization. Your referral will be reviewed and you will be notified of the status.

Referrals authorize services for a specific service and time period. The details of the referral are communicated to the provider to whom you are referred.  You can contact the Referrals Department for a copy of your authorization with details.
