The Workers' Compensation Board makes every effort to keep the names and information on our authorized provider list accurate and up-to-date. The providers on this list are all of the providers that the Workers' Compensation Board has authorized. The authorization of a provider by the Workers' Compensation Board is not a recommendation by the Workers' Compensation Board that the provider is the right one to treat you. It is recommended that you research what provider would be right for you.
