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

The employer or its insurance company provides and directs medical treatment. The Commission may permit the employee to change physicians or approve a physician of employee`s selection when good grounds are shown. However, payment by the employer or carrier is not guaranteed unless written permission to change physicians is obtained from the employer, carrier, or Commission before the treatment is rendered.
