What do you think of all these doctor referrals you need?
I was at the doctor's and that lady said my referral was a doctor to doctor referral and she needed me to get a insurance referral.The doctor told me that was the referral and everything was taken care of. Turned out the insurance referral was emailed there and she did not look for it. I had to see a general practitioner I never seen before to see the doctor I been going to for years. It seams like a lot of unnecessary work to me..
It is, and it always will be. There are some many things involved with health care it can be hard to keep track. From medications, diganose, insurance issues, and different kinds of doctors, there are a lot of room for mistakes. The problem with the system is that there are no short cuts. The health care system itself is designed like a business...you are a customer, they are your solution. No matter what the cost or concerns. For the most part, to me, health care systems are revolving doors, and endless paperwork.
Referrals are used to make sure you get the exact help you need, the exact place you need it....they may be a headache to deal with, but trust me they are very, very organized.
I know what you mean. I have a primary care physician for general stuff, but everything else is a referral include tests like blood draws. I have a standing order for that, so no problem. I see three specialist throughout the year requiring referral and keeping track.
The one good thing is they are all part of a large medical group, all except one referral is in-house. Another thing is we have a goto website to for us that we see everything including test results. So, I check on referrals before they even call me with an appointment reminder. If a problem ensures I can contact my primary care physician. Maybe I am lucky in that regard.

Hubbers need to know if their account is a full-value account worth the full 40% income value to HP. Or if their account is a referred account that is only worth the partial 30% value to HP. Knowing one's value to HP is an important factor in determining how much time, labor, and even money the...

Has anyone had great success with the URL Tracker and referrals? I just read what it was about and seems like a great way to provide incentive for other hubbers to promote other user's content. Does anyone use this strategy to make a lot of money?

Like referrals.1. Why insert an _referralcode into the URL. Couldn't you come up with a dynamic insertion solution? If an insertion was required, what's wrong with appending it at the end of the URL as in ?referrer=xyz? or would that make it too easy for hubbers?2. Why do pages like the Referrals...

I'm getting a few referrals and have nearly 100 hubs written by them now. Just wondering how other hubbers approach their referrals...Do you try and help them, either person to person or in the forums/on their hubs? Or do you leave them be and hope they're smart enough to learn it all themselves...
