The Validity Period Of A Referral Letter From The Puskesmas?
Hello. Want to ask, my referral letter from the puskesmas to the hospital has passed a month. Can I still use it? The disease is still the same. Yes, about 5 days before that. Genital skin specialist
Hi Nur Amelia,
General referral letter has no time limit as long as the disease is still the same, generally a maximum of 1 month. But please note that some agencies will enforce the rules. For example: On the BPJS referral letter, there will be a special article about the validity of the referral period, starting from a few days to 1 month.
If you are a BPJS card holder, you should reconsult with the puskesmas doctor who handled you previously.
Reconsulting again after 1 month is best done because your complaints, although the same, may be different diseases and require examination from a different doctor later. Therefore, you should consult again at the puskesmas.
That's the explanation.
