What is a Designated Medical Provider (DMP)?

A Designated Medical Provider is a medical professional or a facility selected by the employer to treat work related injuries. All employers in North Dakota have the option of selecting a DMP. To verify the license of a North Dakota physician, visit the North Dakota Board of Medical Examiners website. To verify the license of a North Dakota chiropractor, visit the North Dakota Board State Board of Chiropractic Examiners website.

Employers may choose a single provider, a group of providers, or any combination of provider specialties (including chiropractors).

While employers can choose any combination of providers as their DMP, employers should select providers with the knowledge and training to work with occupational injuries.

This professional knowledge in work-related injuries enhances the implementation of appropriate treatment plans that include using the job as part of the recovery process and positively impacts the healing process.

An employer’s selection of a DMP does not apply to emergency treatment, treatment the worker did not know was related to a compensable injury or care directed by WSI or DMP referrals.
