Referrals and Scheduling
What is required to make a referral?
Insurance companies require a physician referral in order to cover neuropsychological assessments. Insurance companies are more likely to provide coverage when the referral specifies the suspected nature and severity of the cognitive impairment. A good example of a referral is: This patient is experiencing significant memory changes. Please evaluate for dementia.
What is the referral and scheduling process?
If you are a provider within The Ohio State University system, a referral can be sent via the electronic medical record via Ambulatory Referral to Neuropsychology. Please specify Ohio State Harding Hospital for our service.
If you are a provider outside the Ohio State system, please fax a referral and recent medical records (including any diagnostic results, such as neuroimaging or lab results) to Ohio State Wexner Medical Center Central Scheduling at 614-293-1456.
