Prescriptions, Referrals and Authorizations

<span property="schema:name" class="field-wrapper">Prescriptions, Referrals and Authorizations</span>

Prescriptions

Always bring a list of or the bottles of any medications, including over-the-counter medicines and herbal supplements, you are taking to your visit. Be sure to ask for prescription refills while you are at WMed Health Psychiatry so you do not run out of medication. If you call later for refills, it may take three business days to get the prescription. We will send your prescriptions to your pharmacy electronically. You can request a prescription refill using your MyChart account. 

If you receive care from a provider outside our practice, please inform us if that provider has prescribed you with new medications. Your doctor or nurse will verify your current medications with you at each visit. You will also receive an updated list of medications at the end of each visit.

Referrals and Authorizations

Our Referrals Department works closely with your psychiatrist to ensure efficient and timely referrals for care. We will assist in scheduling services with other health care providers and will assist your psychiatrist with authorization for services, when required by your insurance.
