I had an uvitis and needed emergent care. My family doctor has request Allied Physicians Ipa to authorize me to see an ophthalmologist in the network the same day. After seeing my ophthalmologist, my ophthalmologist has requested additional authorizations for the follow up. Later I got to know Allied Physician rejected the first authorization made by my family doctor, but authorized the request made by my ophthalmologist. I called Allied Physician, they said, they rejected because they made decision I should've seen Golden San Gabriel Optomitrist Vision Center. Optomitrist Vision Center for UVItis? I called Allied Physician, Allied Physician told me Golden San Gabriel has ophthalmologist as well. I called the Golden San Gabriel Optomitrist Vision Center and found out Allied Physician lied. I called Allied Physician again. They admited it, but they gave another reason: They had done before. To me, they don't care about the patient, they lie, they reject patient's urgent care. I end up paying the doctor myself even though I have blue shield medical insurance.
