How to Create An Online Referral

By: AvMed News AvMed News

Thanks to AvMed’s partnership with HealthTrio, physician-to-physician referrals are easier than ever. Follow these simple steps to create an online referral:

  1. Log into the AvMed Provider Portal using your username and password.
  2. Click on “Quick Referrals” on the Welcome page
  3. Click “I Agree” after reading the disclaimer informing you that you are leaving the AvMed website and entering a third-party portal.
  4. On the New Referral tab, verify the Member.
  5. Select the requesting Provider. You will only have the option to select the Primary Care Physician (PCP) you are logged in as.
  6. Select the servicing Provider.
  7. Provide service details, including the type of service and number of visits.
  8. Write down any clinical comments (if applicable) and then click “Submit.”

The whole process takes only a few minutes. Referrals do not have to be approved by AvMed; we will not deny a referral created or approved by a participating AvMed PCP. All referrals are good for 90 days. Please note you cannot modify an existing referral once it’s submitted.
