Referrals

When you need to see a specialist our Referral Department is here to help make the transition smooth and efficient. We help arrange appointments with BMC providers as well as external community providers for those BMC patients needing care elsewhere.

First, check to see if your primary care provider needs to see you in order to refer you to a medical specialist. Next, check with your insurance provider to make sure that the physician you’ve been referred to — or wish to see — is on your health plan and that your visit will be covered by insurance.

Many specialists will need to have the latest information from your Primary Care provider prior to your appointment. We will work with your provider’s office to ensure we have all the documentation that is needed prior to your appointment.

For more information, please call our Referral Department at (541) 706-2481.

Are you a provider referring a patient?

We are happy to partner with you to care for your patient. Our referral department is here to help make it easy and efficient. Just fax our completed referral form or your own referral form, along with any necessary chart notes, to (541) 706-6474.

Our Referral Coordinators will call your patient, book his or her appointment and ensure you receive all related medical records in a timely manner. We can also coordinate appointments if you’re referring a patient to multiple specialties. Check your weekly referral log every Friday for an update on the week’s referrals or any pending from previous weeks.

Our goal is to make sure referring providers have all the information necessary to provide the best care possible for their patients. If you have any questions about your patients’ appointments, scheduled visits or chart notes, please feel free to call our referral department to have your questions answered.

If you have questions or need more referral pads, call (541) 706-2481.
