Panel Physicians for Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation

The Summer 2009 edition of the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry's publication "News and Notes" posted a helpful article concerning panel physicians for workers' compensation:

Who’s on Your Panel?

Employers who have established a provider panel for injured workers are reminded that their list should include a variety of specialists appropriate to the types of injuries anticipated. The panel must have a minimum of six health care providers listed, three of which must be physicians. The PA Workers’ Compensation Act requires employers to reimburse injured workers for treatment rendered by a provider of the worker’s choosing where the treatment is necessary and reasonable for the type of injury involved and where no suitable provider (e.g., chiropractor, occupational therapist, physical therapist, etc.)
is included on the provider panel.

The full edition of "News and Notes," which contains updated information for workers' compensation and other L&I topics, is available on the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry's website:
