Physician Referrals Out of Network

The Preferred Medical Doctor (PMD) contract specifies in Sections 4.10 and 4.13 that “physicians shall refer members to preferred physicians, preferred podiatry providers, preferred laboratory, and participating hospitals. Physicians must coordinate services outside of the Preferred Provider Network with the corporation’s health management medical director or his/her designee prior to referring members out of network.”
