Employees have the option of pre-designating their personal physician as their treating physician in the event of a work-related injury/illness. This designation must occur prior to a work-related injury/illness and your physician must agree to be pre-designated. Employees bear the responsibility of keeping their physician pre-designation current. A copy of the "Notice of Pre-Designation of Personal Physician" form is attached for your convenience. If you choose to pre-designate, please follow the directions to complete the form and return it to Workers' Compensation, CLA Bldg. 98, Room B1-35.
Note: "Personal Physician" includes a medical group, if the medical group is composed of licensed doctors of medicine or osteopathy operating as a multi-specialty medical group providing comprehensive medical services predominantly for non-occupational illnesses and injuries (for example, Kaiser).
An orthopedic specialist or specialty group cannot be pre-designated.

Workers' Compensation Benefits
Workers' Compensation Benefits - Workers' compensation benefits are designed to provide you with the medical treatment needed to help you recover from your injury or illness caused by work; payment of temporary disability benefits if you lose wages because your injury prevents you from doing your usual job while recovering; payment of permanent disability if you don’t recover completely; and for certain types of injury, supplemental job displacement vouchers to pay for re-training should you be unable to return to work for the same employer. More information is available through the California Department of Industrial Relations (Calif. Division of Workers' Compensation) at: I Was Injured At Work.
