The waiting period is 5 consecutive or cumulative days. If the employee is off for more than 6 days, the first 5 days is paid retroactively.

What is the Choice of Physician Rules in Nevada?
In Nevada, an injured employee must seek treatment with a doctor on the preferred provider list. Our TPA, Broadspire utilizes First Health (PPO). Injured employees can go to any doctor they choose from the list & can change physicians one time without prior authorization from the insurer and only within the first 90 days of the claim. After that, if they want to change physicians, they must submit a written request to Broadspire – Nevada, and it must be approved before he/she can start treating with that doctor. You may contact Broadspire at 702-257-2240 to obtain recommended providers on the preferred provider list.
