Q. Who provides and directs medical treatment resulting from a workers’ compensation accident?

A. The employer or its insurance company, subject to any NC Industrial Commission
orders, provides, and directs medical treatment. The NC Industrial Commission may permit the employee to change physicians or approve a physician of employee’s selection when good grounds are shown. However, payment by the employer or carrier is not guaranteed unless written permission to change physicians is obtained from the employer, carrier, or Commission before the treatment is rendered.
