Workers’ Compensation laws vary widely from state to state. So it is not surprising to find that each state has it’s own rules governing how much an employer or payor can assist an injured worker in finding a doctor for medical care. These rules are known as “right to direct” and dictate how much influence an employer or payor can have over “directing” an injured worker to a preferred provider organization (PPO) network provider.
Below is the right to direct laws for MISSOURI
The employer has the right to direct the employee’s selection of medical provider for non-emergency treatment. The employee should contact his/her supervisor or human resources representative for further instructions before treating with any providers obtained from this referral request.
The injured employee may select their own pharmacy or use a pharmacy in the Tmesys Pharmacy Network.
All of the above description applies solely to non-emergency medical treatment. In the case of a medical emergency, the injured employee should immediately seek care at the closest available emergency treatment facility.
