Hello Everyone -
I just started the process of looking for a new Rheumatologist (I'm currently seeing some one that I'm not happy with) and I'm finding that most doctors are requiring a referral or "transfer order" from my current doctor. This is not a requirement of my insurance; apparently this is an internal policy for several local doctors. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, can you please explain the reasoning behind this and how to maybe circumvent? I really don't want my current doctor to know I am interviewing new doctors until I'm ready to make a change. Any thoughts or suggestions you can offer would be greatly appreciated!
