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

Employees must select a provider from the appropriate Managed Care Provider. This does not apply if the employee lives more than 20 miles from a provider. Employee`s can change treating physicians once during the first 90 days of a claim, without prior approval.

The employer can require an employee to submit to an examination by a physician specified by the employer. Failure to submit to this examination may result in a loss of benefits.
