    Default Re: Open Medical Can I Change My Doctor

    The carrier is still paying for medical care... as such, if they are permitted to control the medical, and select the Dr who treats you...you will have to get a prior authorization to change. Nothing changes post settlement, with continuing medical being paid by the carrier.
