The short answer to that question is usually. In Minnesota, unless you’re under a certified, managed care program, you have the ability to choose your doctor. Once you have established treatment plan with that doctor, it’s harder to pick and choose to a different doctor. So that first choice of doctor, your primary doctor for the work injury ins an important choice that can have long-lasting effects throughout your claim and your injury.
If you’re part of a certified managed care program, the insurance company will tell you that. And they have a little bit more control over where you can and where you can’t go to treatment.
