All referrals must come from a health care professional. If you are currently on dialysis, your dialysis center will need to refer you. If you are not on dialysis but are experiencing renal failure, your nephrologist will refer you. You may also download the physician referral or dialysis referral forms to give to your provider for completion.

Once your referral has been forwarded to our center, we invite you to take the mandatory class. After completing the class, please bring the test results to the first appointment.

After completing the class, please download the test, complete, and bring to your first appointment. If you do not complete the class and test prior to your visit, you will be required to attend a scheduled class appointment.

Please take the time to review the following informative documents that will be discussed with you at your first appointment.

After your referral is received the time before you will receive an appointment varies depending upon your insurance plan. If your carrier is contracted with the University of Miami Health System and Jackson Health System, an MTI representative will contact you to go over the referral and issue an appointment and class date. If your insurance carrier is not contracted with MTI, your referral will need approval from the MTI Finance Team before making an appointment.
