ConnectiCare Passage Plan Patients Now Accepted at UConn Health


Physicians at UConn Health recently began accepting ConnectiCare passage plan patients. “Passage” plans are referral plans offered by ConnectiCare to commercial and Medicare Advantage members. Members of passage plans are required to get primary care provider (PCP) referrals to see any specialist in the ConnectiCare network. For assistance on referrals and general information, contact practicerelations@uchc.edu.

 

When do doctors need to submit a referral?

When a patient needs specialist care, a referral must be submitted before the patient goes to see that specialist. One referral is required for office visits for each different specialty. However, a referral isn’t needed for each visit to the same specialist.

For example:

  1. If the patient needs to see a dermatologist and a cardiologist, a separate referral must be entered for each specialist.
  2. If the patient’s dermatologist refers the patient to a surgeon, the patient will need another PCP referral for the surgeon.
  3. If the patient needs to see a dermatologist six times, only one referral is needed. Referrals should be submitted with start and end dates that allow the patient enough time to see the dermatologist six times.
