Do I have to see my company's doctor?
You have the right to choose the doctor that treats your work related injury. If your employer requests that you see a doctor of their choosing, this request should be made through their insurer. If you receive such a request you are required to participate in this examination. The insurer may request that their doctor examine you as often as every 60 days.

Similar to the regulations governing the patient's choice of doctor, the insurer may only change its examining doctor once. If the insurer's doctor refers you to a specialist this is not considered a change of physician. The insurer will pay the costs of the examination. If you do not participate in the examination your benefits may be terminated until you visit their doctor.
