I can't answer that question because it solely depends on your insurance. Managed care is typically run through a PCP. HMOs are examples. Other insurers, including Medicare, do not typically require a referral. That question needs to be directed to your insurance carrier.

Contact your insurance company about the referral but the treatment should be covered.

Most insurances cover treatment. As for if you need a referral, that depends on your insurance. Some require a referral others do not. I would recommend calling your insurance carrier.

The answer depends on you insurance. If you have an HMO you most probably need a referral from your GP. If you have a PPO plan most probably you don't.
