If your child needs to see a specialist, follow these instructions to process a referral:

  1. Determine if your insurance company requires you to have a referral for the problem that your child has. PPOs do not need referrals.
  2. Obtain approval from your PCP (clinician) for the referral.
  3. Make an appointment with the specialist.
  4. Click on Referral Request form below, input the information requested, and click on submit.
  5. It takes approximately 5 - 7 business days to process your referral. Most referrals are now electronic, so there is no hard copy. Your specialist will receive the referral via fax.
  6. Alternative to submitting the form online, you can call the Virginia Pediatric Group referral line at and leave us all information required.
