Referrals and Prior Authorizations at Brookside Community Health Center

The Managed Care Department assists patients with managing the referral process. We work with patients to schedule a specialist appointment when advised by a primary care provider. If required, we ensure an insurance referral or prior authorization is in place prior to the specialist appointment. As a part of the Brigham system, we primarily refer patients to:

  • Other Brigham and Women's Hospital locations
  • Faulkner Hospital
  • Boston Children's Hospital
  • Mass Eye and Ear Institute.

The Managed Care Department can be reached at 617-983-6037 and 617-983-6072 (Fax 617-983-0434).
