Doctor Checking a Form

Referrals

To qualify for our discharge services, patients must be leaving inpatient care and be able to have their first telehealth appointment within the first 7 days of discharge.

Our fax number is 517-879-0374.

As part of the referral process, we ask that you notify patients that BridgeCare will likely contact them (or a family care coordinator) by phone to schedule or confirm their appointment. Patients MUST agree for us to contact them to be eligible for our services.

Phone/Fax Referrals

  1. Patients must agree to temporary primary care services through BridgeCare.

  2. A face sheet, referral form, and discharge summary must be sent to our office, either via fax at  517-879-0374 or by emailing us at contact@bridgecarespecialists.com.

  3. Once all paperwork is in place, a patient's first follow-up appointment can be scheduled using our online scheduler or over the phone (must be within 7 days of discharge).

Online Referral Process

  1. If a patient agrees to temporary primary care services through BridgeCare, their first follow-up appointment can be scheduled using our online scheduler (appointment must be within 7 days of discharge). A care manager may schedule this appointment on behalf of the patient, but the patient must be made aware of BridgeCare's services.

  2. A face sheet and discharge summary must be faxed to our office (517-879-0374) for the referral to be considered complete.

  3. Once all paperwork is in place, our office will contact the patient and referral sender to confirm the appointment.
