Designated Medical Provider (DMP)

Role of the DMP Things to keep in mind Find and interview a DMP
Role of the Employer Employer information Worker information
Worker does not want to seek treatment from employer's DMP

All employers in North Dakota have the option of selecting a Designated Medical Provider (DMP) or group of physicians to provide medical treatment to workers who sustain work-related injuries.

If you have a question or concern regarding the Designated Medical Provider program, contact our Employer Services Department via email at WSIDMP@nd.gov

Role of the DMP

  • Provide prompt and appropriate care to worker injured on the job.
  • Evaluate the injury and develop an appropriate treatment plan that includes using the job as part of the recovery process.
  • Provide prompt and complete reports (within 24 hours of the appointment). NOTE: At each appointment, the provider will complete a Capability Assessment form (C3).
  • Establish functional abilities and focus on the injured worker’s abilities rather than disabilities.
  • Share the employer’s goal of keeping the injured worker at work, while making sure their abilities match their job functions.
  • Understand the employer’s business operations and worker’s job functions.
  • Understand the utilization review process. Consult Utilization Review Guide.
  • Keep in touch with the injured worker, employer, and Workforce Safety & Insurance .
