Learn how to Refer to CNS. For providers, CNS may require a referral from the patient’s primary care physician (PCP), primary care manager (PCM) or other designated primary care provider, or another referring provider to include specialists/facilities. Some health plans require a referral and in some cases prior authorization may be required.
The referring provider should indicate the reason for the referral or chief complaint and purpose of the visit. Documenting a clear reason for the referral will allow the neurologist to focus on the request and establish a productive initial visit.
Example referral reasons, but not limited to:
- Abnormal Brain Scan
- Back Pain
- Carpal Tunnel Unspecified
- Gait Disorder
- Lower Leg Pain
- Memory Loss
- Muscle Weakness
- Neck Pain
- Slurred Speech
- Ulnar Nerve Injury
CNS accepts many national and local health plans. In addition, a designated specialist accepts most national and local referrals from worker’s compensation companies, Medpay insurance, and medical lien case referrals.
