702.419 Action by employer upon acquiring knowledge or being given notice of injury.
Whenever an employer acquires knowledge of an employee's injury, through receipt of a written notice or otherwise, said employer shall forthwith authorize, in writing, appropriate medical care. If a form is prescribed for this purpose it shall be used whenever practicable.

In all other cases, consent may be given upon a showing of good cause for change.
