Accreditation of Physicians in Colorado Workers Compensation Cases

Have you heard too many horror stories about people who got stuck with a doctor they hated while recovering from a workplace accident?

Are you worried about finding a good doctor that can help aide you in your recovery?

Are you worried you’ll get stuck with an unaccredited doctor risking further injury or a longer recovery?

Getting and staying connected with a doctor for your workers comp injury is not a wonderful process. Nothing having to do with filing a claim is easy, but it’s the law, and we all have to follow it! 

According to Colorado workers compensation laws, your employer will provide you with a list of doctors that provide treatment for injured workers. However, if for some reason, you’re dissatisfied with your doctor, you’re allowed a one-time change within 90 days.

Don’t wait forever! The clock is ticking!

According to the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, “Level I accreditation is available to chiropractors, podiatrists, dentists and physicians and PAs who don’t perform impairment ratings. Level II accreditation is available to qualified MDs and DOs who perform impairment ratings.” All of the doctors who are on the list that can provide treatment to you should be on the list provided by your employer. However, it’s important to do your research because some doctors may slip through the cracks. 

Ensure that your health is protected and your recovery is on an upward trajectory. It always makes sense to consult with an attorney first. No matter what happened in your case, we’ll let you know whether or not an attorney is needed immediately or at all. Don’t waste your time with a law firm that isn’t giving you answers, and charges you just to ask questions. Our Colorado workers compensation attorneys at Kaufman & Kaufman, LLC. won’t charge you anything to ask simple questions, so what are you waiting for?
