In non-emergency situations or when emergency care is no longer required, you must provide the injured worker with a designated provider list.
A designated provider list must:
- be provided immediately upon notice of the injury;
- be provided as a written copy to the injured worker within seven business days of the report of the injury;
- have four physicians and/or corporate medical providers within a 30-mile radius that are willing to treat the injured worker; and
- Exceptions can apply to rural areas, and telemedicine is permissible.
- include complete contact information for the insurance carrier/self-insured employer.
If no physician is properly designated, the employee may select the health care provider of their choice.
- The Workers’ Compensation Act poster must be displayed on the workplace premises.
- The Notice to Employer of Injury Poster must be displayed on the workplace premises and must be a minimum of 14 inches high and 11 inches wide. Each letter must measure 1/2" high.
