The primary care provider (PCP) must complete the Referral to Specialist form and submit or fax it to Premera Blue Cross before the member receives services from a specialist. If Premera does not receive this completed form before the services are delivered, the claim for the specialist’s services will be denied. Receipt and acceptance of this referral form does not guarantee a benefit nor does it constitute a benefit advisory. A referral form is not required for OB/GYN, chiropractic, mental health, preventive, substance abuse, ophthalmologist/optometrist, or autism services. The member does not need approval in advance for treatment of life-threatening conditions or urgent and emergency care.

I also understand that receipt and acceptance of this referral form does not in any way indicate that any services provided subsequent to this referral are assured of benefits coverage under this plan.
