I haven't had to see a specialist yet but there is something going on where it looks like I may need to. Do you have to get a referral from your primary care physician in order to go to a specialist?

In most cases I would say yes, unless it is a preexisting condition. I think most any health care plans want to know why they are paying extra for a specialist and the doctor referral is the easiest way to do so.
