Who chooses the medical care in a workers' compensation case?
When treating employees’ workplace injuries, the employer typically provides the medical care. As part of this process, the employer usually has the right to choose the medical care provider.
If an employee is not satisfied with his health care treatment, that employee can discuss the issue with his employer or the insurance carrier. If the employee is still not satisfied, he may apply for alternate medical care to the workers’ compensation commission.
