Our referral policy is simple.
The OSU Health Plan does not require members to obtain referrals for services. However, some providers may require a referral to see a member/patient.
When providing a referral for an OSU Health Plan member, you must refer the member to another provider within the OSU Health Plan network. Any consult form or other means of communication between you as the referring physician and the chosen consulting physician/provider is acceptable. It is not necessary to send a copy of the referral to the OSU Health Plan.
If you are interested in referring a patient to or talking with a physician at The Ohio State University Hospitals or The James Cancer Hospital, call the OSU ConsultLine at 800-824-8236.
