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

Workers` compensation insurance policies don`t allow you complete freedom of choice of medical providers. An insurer contracting with a Managed Care Organization (MCO) can direct you to the MCO for medical care.

Also, insurers will be able to direct you to preferred provider organizations (PPOs) in addition to, or in conjunction with, managed care organizations. After the date your insurer gives you written notice of a preferred provider, the insurer is no longer liable for charges if you continue to see the non­preferred provider.
