Physician Selection 85.27

The employer has the choice of physician.

If the employee is dissatisfied with the care offered, the employee should discuss the problem with the employer or insurance carrier. In certain situations the employee may wish to request alternate care. If the employer or insurance carrier does not allow alternate care, the employee (through appropriate proceedings) may apply to the Workers' Compensation Commissioner for alternate medical care.
