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

Worker does not want to seek treatment from Employer's DMP

  • Injured workers are required to see your company’s designated medical provider UNLESS they have previously informed you of a different provider BEFORE an injury occurred.
  • If you disagree with the worker’s additional selection, the law provides a process for WSI to ultimately decide. You may file an objection to the worker’s choice of provider within five days.
  • If the injured worker does not see your designated medical provider, or the one they chose before being injured, it may result in nonpayment of benefits.
  • If an injured worker saw your company’s DMP, they must receive care from that provider for 60 days before they can change providers. After 60 days, the injured worker must request, in writing to WSI, a change in providers or request a referral from the treating physician.
  • This does not apply to emergency care or care the injured worker did not know was related to their injury.
