Receiving medical care after a work-related injury is the first thing you should do in order to start your road to recovery. However, you need to make sure you are receiving proper medical care and advice.
Selecting a Doctor
The state of California has a medical system called the Medical Provider Networks (MPN). It was created to diagnose and treat work-related injuries. Most employers in California have a pre-approved MPN. If your employer does, you will need to select a pre-approved medical provider in the MPN.
