Can I go to my own Doctor? Who gets to pick the doctor?
Under Iowa law, your employer and their insurance carrier get to select the doctor because they pay for them. You can go to your own doctor under your own health insurance if the claim is denied. If you have to go to the doctor and you miss work going to the authorized doctor, your employer is required to pay you your normal pay for going to the doctor. You’re also entitled to mileage expense which varies now around fifty five cents a mile.
