Health care providers must be authorized by the Workers’ Compensation Board to see Workers’ Compensation patients. The Workers’ Compensation Board has lists of providers who are authorized to treat you. You can find a doctor onhttp://www.wcb.ny.gov/hps/HPSearch.jsp, or by calling 1-800-781-2362. You can receive care from any of these providers, or from your own doctor, if he or she is registered.
If the insurer has a network of providers to care for injured workers, you must use those providers. This is called a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO). The insurer must notify you of this. If you aren’t satisfied with the care you receive from the PPO, you may select an authorized provider outside the PPO after 30 days of treatment.
