There are a number of ways to treat a workplace injury. However, to find the right one for you, you need to see the right doctor.

If you’re filing a workers’ compensation claim, you will need to work with a special workers’ compensation doctor. Let’s take a look at what that process looks like and why it’s important for you to use a doctor in a workers’ compensation claim.

Selecting Your Workers’ Compensation Doctor

In the state of New York, the injured employee is able to select your own treating doctor. This means you’re able to use the doctor of your choice to get medical care, but they must accept a workers’ compensation billing schedule.

When you choose your doctor, you want to ensure they comply with the rules and regulations set out by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. Double checking with both your doctor and your insurance provider before any medical treatment is performed can prevent you from needing to pay out of pocket.
