PacifiCare/AARP United Healthcare MEDICARE COMPLETE Insurance Holders
PacifiCare/AARP United Healthcare Medicare Complete-Optum, Phoenix Direct, & Banner patients CAN NOT be seen by an Ophthalmologist until they are seen by a contracted Optometrist first.
YOUR PRIMARY CARE DOCTOR CAN NOT REFER.
This is a policy set by your insurance company. Unfortunately, we at the Chandler Eye Center do not have the abiliy to override this policy and see you without a contracted Optometrist referral.
If you are experiencing an emergency your primary care doctor may call Eye Specialist Of AZ *1-800-243-1401 or Banner BPHO *480-6847070 to get an authorization number.
That will allow you to be seen by an Ophthalmologist on an emergency basis only!
