If I Am Injured On The Job Can I Choose The Doctor Who Treats Me?

The employer is responsible for furnishing the initial medical treatment at an employer­designated office or facility. After this initial treatment, the employee may choose an attending physician.

You may choose an attending physician only after first seeing an employer­designated medical practitioner, if the employer offers one. An employee may choose any medical practitioner on the approved list of medical practitioners of the Workers` Compensation Commission Chairman who is licensed to practice in Connecticut, including practitioners of chiropractic, medicine, naturopathy, optometry, osteopathy, and podiatry.
