For Your First Visit
It's best to bring as much information as possible with you to your first appointment, including:
UCLA accepts most health insurance plans and will bill your insurance company or companies directly for covered services included in your plan. If you are not covered by insurance, we generally request payment at the time of your appointment. We encourage you to review your insurance plan prior to your first appointment with us and to make sure that you understand your coverage. Be sure to check with your HMO, PPO or employer to confirm that UCLA is included in your plan. (You can do this by calling your plan's customer service department or speaking to your employer's benefits representative.) Find out if your plan requires an authorization for your initial consultation. (Again, your plan's customer service department and/or your employer's benefits representative can help you with this.) If an authorization is required, please bring a copy of the authorization to your first appointment. After your initial consultation, we ask that you see our managed care coordinator as soon as you know that you will be receiving care at UCLA. Your UCLA doctor can direct you to our managed care coordinator after your visit.
