SHIP Referrals

Don't get stuck with the bill!

An approved insurance referral is required prior to seeking medical services outside of Tang or your claims will be denied. Dental, vision, services provided in a hospital emergency room or urgent care clinic, prescriptions filled outside of UHS, international services, and some limited preventative and women's health visits do not require an approved referral.
