Overview of the Referral Process for CRL
CRL will do an initial review to let you know right away if your referral meets the basic requirements of the CRL mandate. CRL emphasizes that at this stage the communication about the referral be confidential between you as a care professional, and CRL. You will be asked to agree to confidentiality and then you may proceed to fill out and send CRL the Preliminary Referral Form to which we will respond promptly.
Once you receive a positive response from CRL for your referral, CRL will need you to provide a CRL “All-Purpose Release Form”. We will need these formed signed by uploaded signature by both you and the client. Or you may printout out paperwork and send to CRL. We are required to have all signatures before we are able to fulfill the request.
Once the request has been fulfilled, there is a form that needs to be signed by the recipient (either household or referring professional) that acknowledges the receipt of the CRL item of service as described. CRL hopes that this process will help meet the urgent needs of your clients promptly and satisfactorily.
