Panel of Physicians State Requirements
Some states (such as Georgia) require that a Panel of Physicians be posted in a conspicuous place and available for workers to choose from in the event of an on-the-job injury or illness.
To find out what your state requirements are, please visit your state’s Board of Workers’ Compensation website.
The employer is given the right to determine the physicians included on the panel, thus retaining control of medical treatment if the panel is properly completed and employees properly educated on its correct use. Employees must select a doctor from the Panel of Physicians provided by their employer. Failure to comply with the state requirement for posted medical panels could eliminate your right to determine or direct care to a recommended medical provider
You may contact the Medical Management staff at Builders for more information about the Panel of Physicians or to obtain a list of doctors in your area. Contact Medical Management at 678.309.4000 or 800.883.9305 and select option “2” or you may e-mail Medical_Management@bldrs.com.
