*Providers authorized to treat and perform independent medical examinations have an authorization number ending in B. Providers authorized to only treat have an authorization number ending in W. Providers authorized to only perform independent medical examinations have an authorization number ending in I.

These providers are prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers and/or from performing independent medical examinations. Reports submitted for services rendered prior to the effective date are valid but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine any of the above for services rendered prior to the effective date should not be denied due to the removal of their authorizations.

Any questions regarding the authorized lists should be referred to the Medical Director's Office at 1 (800) 781-2362.
