Direct Access to Specialty Care

The American Urological Association (AUA) and the Urology Care Foundation state their conviction that the interest of patient care is best served when patients have direct access to any, and all physicians, and oppose any system of healthcare delivery wherein health insurance systems limit access to specialty care.

The revision above combined the following two policy statements into one statement:

  • Patient Referrals to Specialty Care
  • Direct Access to Specialty Care
