Making an Infectious Disease Appointment
Due to the nature of your illness, your primary care provider or specialist may recommend a consultation with an infectious disease specialist. For your health and safety, you should follow your provider’s instructions and schedule this appointment.

Most health insurance covers the infectious disease consultation and follow up care. Most insurance plans require you to obtain a referral from your primary care physician prior to being seen by the specialist. This referral must be obtained before you see the specialist. It is always a good idea to check with your insurance company prior to the appointment to confirm coverage.
