Medical Insurance is an important part of everyone’s health care today. Since there are so many types of insurance plans available, coverage can be very different depending on which plan you are covered under.
It is a good idea for you to understand your current insurance plan. Some plans require that you get approval from your regular doctor to see a specialist. This is called a referral. If this is how your plan is set up, then you will need to get the referral prior to your scheduled appointment with a Urology Specialist.
