Referrals & Insurance Coverage
You may make an appointment directly with the Center for Breast Health (self referral) or have an appointment arranged through your doctor’s office (doctor referral). However, you may need a doctor referral to ensure insurance coverage for certain appointments and procedures. Check with your insurance provider to see if a doctor referral is needed and if reimbursement is available under your medical plan for our physicians and facility.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Some insurance providers require a specific waiting period before tests or procedures can be performed. For example, routine screening mammograms often are only reimbursed annually. Some other procedures require a six-month waiting period before additional testing will be reimbursed. Ask your insurance provider to explain these guidelines.
Services offered at the Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital Center for Breast Health are described under routine screening and specialized services.
