NWCC – Form 50, revised 3/2013 / Employee’s Choice or Change of Doctor Form:
This form should be given to the injured worker as soon as possible after each injury. The employee has a right to treat with a physician who has treated the employee (or members of his immediate family) in the past. The employer must inform the employee of this right. If the employer does not inform the employee of this right, the restriction does not apply and the employee can choose any physician. If the employee does not have a physician or chooses not to treat with that physician, the employer chooses the physician. Once the employer chooses the physician, that physician can only be changed by agreement of the parties or by order of the Court.
