Do I Have to See Company Doctor?

In Wisconsin you do not have to see company doctor.  Injured employees under Wisconsin workers compensation law, Wis. Stats. Sec 102.42, have the freedom to choose the doctor they want to see.  Generally, any doctor licensed in Wisconsin can be selected by the injured worker.  Out of state doctors can be used if referred to by your Wisconsin doctor or if the employer agrees you can treat with the out of state doctor.  Under worker's comp law, the injured employee is limited to two doctor choices.  However, any doctor that one of your first two choices refers you to is included in that choice.  So as long as the employee stays within his referral circle it should be covered.  Also, if the injured worker goes to a doctor but does not ask the worker's compensation carrier or employer to pay for that doctor, it is not one of his two choices.
