There may be a charge for this service. Any form requiring physician assessment may need a physician visit in order to complete.

In order to see a specialist, do I need a referral from my primary care physician at Crown Point?
To determine whether you need a referral from us before seeing a medical specialist, please view the terms of your insurance plan. Often, this information is listed on your insurance card or can be obtained by calling your insurance company. Our medical providers can refer you to a specialist if your health situation requires it or if your health insurance company requires a referral.
How do I obtain a prescription refill?
If you need a prescription refill, please call your pharmacy. The pharmacy will contact your physician for approval of the refill. Please remember to call your pharmacy 2 days before your supply of medicine runs out to leave ample time for it to be refilled. MyChart users can request refills from their computer or any mobile device 24 hours a day.
