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

Things to keep in mind when selecting a DMP

  • The provider should be reputable.
  • The provider should agree to see injured workers promptly.
  • The provider should be open to working with WSI’s utilization review process.
  • The provider’s attitude toward treating injured workers should be the same as if they’re treating someone covered by group health or indemnity insurance.
  • The utilization of resources should be conservative or alternative treatment methods exhausted before performing surgeries.
  • The provider should have a good bedside manner.
  • The provider’s philosophy should be for the injured worker to remain on the job if possible, rather than stating the injured worker is disabled.
  • The provider should speak to you at a level you can understand.
  • The provider’s reports should be in legible handwriting or typed so you can read their reports.
  • The provider’s action and posture should be reflective of their verbal message.
  • The provider should refer responsibility to specialists, as needed.
