Maryland Compliance



 

Physician Selection

In Maryland, medical providers can be selected by the injured worker; however, if they cannot find a medical provider in their area who is willing to provide medical treatment (who is willing to accept the rules of the Medical Fee Guide), it is often suggested that parties should consider contacting the employer/insurer for suggestions for medical providers in their area (the insurer is most likely to have data listing participating medical providers in the various regions of the State, based on their payment records).

There is no formal procedure for change of physician.
