Do I have to see the doctor that the employer or insurance company picked to treat me?

Posted on Friday, February 21st, 2014 at 1:04 pm    

No, generally not. You are allowed to pick your own doctor once as a matter of right, and you are usually allowed to switch to a different doctor of your choice after that. There are some exceptions to this rule if a doctor lives exceptionally far away from you when other doctors nearby practice the same type of medicine, or if a doctor is out of network for the Workers’ Compensation provider, but these are relatively rare occurrences. In general, when the employer or insurance company picks your doctor for you, it’s a trap! They don’t try to do that when you have an attorney. If the insurance company is refusing to pay for your chosen doctor, call Lawrence & Associates immediately!
