Do I get to pick my own doctor?

Yes and No. In exchange for receiving medical care paid by your employer, you are restricted to treating with a doctor “pre-selected” by your employer. As a general rule, you are required to select a doctor from the employers “Panel of Physicians” which is required to be posted in your place of work.  If this panel of physicians does not exist or was not properly posted, you MAY be able to select a doctor of your choice. This area of the law can be quite complicated.
