Labor groups push strongly to allow employees the ability to choose which doctor they visit for treatment after a workplace injury. This creates a myriad of problems for the employer. A workers’ compensation system that allows employees to choose their care have higher premiums of between 20 to 25 percent. This is because employees may go to the wrong type of doctor, which would result in referrals to other specialists. NFIB strongly opposes any legislation that would allow employees to have free reign over who provides the care in a workforce compensation claim.
