I currently have an authorized referral from my PCP, but the outside provider is referring me to someone else. Does my authorized referral still apply?

​   Yes, as long as the informal referral is related to the same diagnosis on your original Ashe referral. In some cases another referral is required due to medical need of a different service. For example, you have a broken foot and are referred to UCLA Orthopedics for surgery. But the surgeon recommends that you get physical therapy treatment. This need for physical therapy requires another Ashe referral because a different service is needed. Then, you may be referred to an outside physical therapy clinic or one that already exists in-house at The Ashe Center. There are instances when a separate referral is needed because the ordering provider prefers an authorization on file. One example is the request for home healthcare services.
