State-Specific Rules for Selecting Medical Providers:
Claimant's choice of physician is limited to acceptance of physician tendered by the employer or choosing his own. Once the choice is made in writing, that physician may refer the claimant to one physician in as many specialties, as necessary, but cannot make referrals to multiple physicians in the same. The MWCC can allow a change of physician even after the choice has been made in writing. For injuries after 7/1/12, being treated by a physician for 6 months or undergoing surgery by a physician, makes the physician claimant's physician choice. Miss. Code Ann. 71-3-15(1). MS ADC 49 000 001, Gen. Rule 9.
