Most private insurance plans don’t require a formal referral.  However, if you have been told that your blood glucose or cholesterol is elevated, or that you have diabetes or any number of other health problems, it helps to have a referral so that labs and medication details are available during our visits.  Medicare requires a referral. Your medical provider can fax referrals to (907) 312-7700.
