There are several struggles associated with workplace injuries, one of which is finding the right doctor for treatment. Most people in Colorado prefer to work with their own physicians because they know and trust them.
However, under state law, the employer has the right to designate the doctor who will be used to treat the injury or illness. We know how important it is for patients to be able to work with a doctor whom they can trust. Often, the employer may select physicians that the insurance company has already designated. In some cases, that could mean that the doctors are acting in the best interest of the insurance company and not the patient.
