Will I be allowed to go to any doctor, chiropractor or therapist that I choose?
No, you must go to an authorized medical provider who is a member of the Panel of Treating Physicians and Chiropractors. Insurers may use a managed care organization (MCO), preferred provider organization (PPO), health maintenance organization (HMO) or the insurance company’s internal managed care unit. In the event of a serious injury, go to your nearest emergency room and follow staff directions.
