1. First, be sure the physician (doctor) you would like to see is Work Comp certified. In Ohio, a medical provider must be certified by the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation. Most physicians' offices will simply tell you if you call, but if you are having trouble the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC) website has a list of current providers who are BWC certified.
2. Be sure the doctor is willing to participate in your claim. Many physicians are BWC certified but are not willing to participate in the BWC system or are unwilling to be an Injured Workers' Physician of Record.
3. Even if you have begun your treatment with a physician (doctor) chosen by your Employer, you still have a right to change your physician (doctor)
