Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I obtain a referral for specialty care?

A: Your Primary Care Physician (PCP) is responsible for coordinating any medically needed referrals for specialty care. St. Jude Affiliated Physicians (SJHAP) has a comprehensive network of more than 280 specialists. Depending on the specialty required, you may need an authorized referral from your PCP or your insurance plan to access these services. However, most referrals to in-network SJAP specialists are given at the time of your PCP appointment and do not require prior approval from the SJAP Clinical Services Department.

Q: Which hospitals are affiliated with SJAP?

A: We're proud to be associated with two of Orange County's finest hospitals: St.Jude Medical Center and CHOC Children's Hospital.

Q: Where do I go for Urgent Care services after hours?

A: An urgent problem is defined as an injury or condition needing prompt medical attention. After-hours urgent care services are available at the Urgent Care Center on a walk-in basis for problems that are urgent, but not life-threatening. Members seeking urgent care during normal business hours will be directed to their Primary Care Physician for care. During regular office hours, please contact your Primary Care Physician for medical care first.
