Diagnostic Imaging & Radiology - Referral Guidelines

Health insurance guidelines for Radiology procedures are complex and vary according to the insurance company and type of procedure requested. Insurance and managed care companies often require referrals, pre-certification, or authorization numbers before a radiology exam can be scheduled.

The Division of Diagnostic Imaging and Radiology is pleased to assist our patients in navigating through these rules and regulations. Please contact our billing specialists at 202-476-2572 or 202-476-4963 for assistance.
