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

For your first visit to the doctor or hospital your employer has the right to designate a health care provider within the employer`s preferred provider arrangement. After that initial treatment, you have the right to choose your own health care providers. You may change these providers one time without the permission of the insurer. To change providers again you will need the insurer to agree to the change.
