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

An injured worker has the right to be treated by the doctor of their choice as long as the doctor is a Bureau of Workers` Compensation (BWC) certified provider. An injured worker wishing to change physicians should notify the managed care organization of this request. If your employer is self­insured the questions regarding your choice or a change in physician should be sent directly to the employer.
