A: If the employer and their insurance carrier have agreed that you are entitled to worker’s compensation benefits then they have the right to choose the treating medical doctor. However, special circumstances may exist that may allow the injured employee to seek treatment from a doctor of their choosing. These circumstances are very fact dependent and it will be necessary for you to speak with a worker’s compensation attorney to determine if you have to see the employer’s choice of doctors.If the insurance company has denied the injured worker’s claim then the injured worker may select his own doctor for treatment and file a claim against the insurance company in an attempt to force the insurance company to pay for the medical treatment.
