Can I choose my own doctor for a workers' compensation claim?

When you are hurt at work and file a workers' compensation claim, you must see the doctors they provide for you. If you would like a second opinion, you must get permission.

You may talk to the insurance carrier and see if he or she will allow you to go to another doctor, or you can request a hearing by completing a Form 50 and have a Commissioner make a determination on the case.
