#110 - Georgia Workers' Comp - What is a Posted Panel of Physicians?

When you are injured on the job, you need to find medical care quickly.  In a perfect world, your employer will properly direct you to a posted panel of physicians (aka list of doctors) you can review and select a doctor to seek treatment from.  However, more and more we are seeing that the panel is not posted and in fact often times there is no panel that the employee/injured worker is aware of.  The panel is in a drawer somewhere.   So much for being posted.  However, lately, we see the courts think this is ok and still allow the Employer control of medical care. 

Medical care is critical, if you are injured on the job, you need to let your supervisor/boss know and request medical care.  If you have questions you would like answered shoot us a text or give us a call at 912-233-1100. 

Stay safe.
