Can I see my own Doctor for a workers’ compensation Injury?
With a workers’ compensation injury you should have all your medical care approved by either your employer or the workers’ compensation adjustor. It’s very important that you don’t go see your own doctor without approval because if you do that sometimes those bills are not covered or it’d be more difficult to get those bills covered by workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation will approve certain medical care and if you are in need of additional medical care its important that you request that and wait for their approval and then that should be covered but if you receive medical care from unapproved sources you might not get that covered under workers’ compensation. So be very careful with that.
