Do I have to use 1 of the 3 doctors given to me in panel? TN
#1
I am in Tennessee.  I have been referred to an orthopaedic specialist by my WC doctor.  The 3 that I have been given by WC company in panel, all have horrible reviews from patients.  I asked my WC adjuster if she would look up a couple different doctors that I have used in the past to see if they are in network, one of them I know is.  She told me that I don't have a choice.  I have to use one of the doctors on her panel.  Is it true that I have to use a butcher just because they say so.  I would think that I would have some say in the matter.

Please help!

you are in a republican controlled state. they have limited workers rights especially those filing claims against their employers.
more information here:
The employee must select one doctor from the Form C-42 and sign the form. The doctor chosen by the employee will become the authorized treating physician and will provide medical treatment at the employer’s expense.

The employee may, however, obtain a second opinion or additional medical treatment with any doctor at his/her own expense.
