Refer a Patient

A referring physician may contact us for further consultation, co-management or transfer of a patient to the care of a ColumbiaDoctors physician.

Patients will have direct and immediate access to a ColumbiaDoctors specialist and will be offered coordinated care within our NewYork-Presbyterian / Columbia University Medical Center system. Your patient will receive comprehensive management of their condition. Follow-up reports will be sent to your office on your patient’s progress and treatment to keep you informed along the way.

Accepted Insurance

ColumbiaDoctors accepts most health care insurance plans in the greater New York City area, though participation varies by doctor. To see the plans a doctor accepts, click Find a Doctor above and search for the doctor by name. Confirm that the plan is accepted by directly speaking with the doctor’s office. Alternate payment arrangements may be possible if your patient's plan is not accepted.
