Selecting a Designated Medical Provider (DMP)

As an employer, be selective in the process of choosing a DMP. Some areas to consider include:

  • Does the provider have experience in working with occupational injuries?
  • Is the provider willing to come to your place of business to understand your operations?
  • Is the provider open to including using the job as part of the recovery process?
  • Is the provider willing to communicate with you on work-related treatment plans in a timely manner (define what the timely expectation would be)?
  • Is the provider willing to allow an employer representative to attend an appointment with the injured worker to discuss return-to-work (RTW) options?
  • How does the provider measure functional capabilities?

As an employee, you have the right to select a different DMP however this must be completed prior to an injury. If WSI does not agree with your DMP selection, state law allows WSI to decline the request.
