Workers’ Compensation medical treatment benefits include doctor visits, treatment services such as therapy, medications, medical equipment and procedures as well as related travel costs and expenses.
You have the right to choose your physician if your claim is denied or if you pre-designated a doctor in writing and communicated that to your employer before your work injury occured. Otherwise, if your employer maintains a network of doctors, you have the right to choose from a list of providers. If your employer does not have a network, you can also choose the doctor of your choice.
Choosing the right doctor is incredibly important to your case. We are familiar with doctors in your area and can help you choose the best doctor available to give you the best possible chance to recover from your injury if possible or if not, that you obtain a disability opinion that accurately reflects your level of impairment.
