What is a referral?

‚ÄčA referral is a written authorization from your Ashe primary care provider (PCP) only provided if deemed medically necessary. It is granted when specialized care, not found at Ashe, is needed. Students with UC SHIP are required to obtain a written referral if the case may be. Otherwise, all non-emergency medical services must be initiated at The Ashe Center. The plan will not pay for unauthorized incurring expenses outside of The Ashe Center and retroactive referrals are not granted.
