When you file for worker’s compensation in Colorado, your workplace must provide a “designated provider list” of up to four doctors or clinics. When seeking medical attention for your work-related injury, you must select a doctor from this list. However, if your workplace fails to provide this list within seven business days of you notifying them about the injury, you are free to select your own doctor.
If you begin working with a doctor provided by your employer who you feel does not have your best interests in mind, you may be able to make a switch. A skilled team of workplace accident attorneys can help you navigate this situation in the best way possible.
