Mayo Clinic works with hundreds of insurance companies and is an in-network provider for millions of people. In most cases, Mayo Clinic doesn't require a physician referral. Some insurers require referrals or may have additional requirements for certain medical care. All appointments are prioritized on the basis of medical need.
Directed by plastic surgeons, Mayo Clinic's Cleft and Craniofacial Clinic in Minnesota uses a multidisciplinary team approach in the treatment of all types of craniofacial disorders, including cleft lip and palate.
