Injured workers in Washington state can now choose from more than 20,000 health-care providers in the Department of Labor & Industries’ medical network. The network went live in 2013 to serve workers who need ongoing medical treatment for job-related injuries or illness.
L&I data show that 99 percent of injured workers statewide live within 15 miles of at least five primary-care providers who are in the network. Patients also have access to a broad range of specialists through the provider network.
Injured workers in Washington can see any doctor for their first visit when a claim is filed, but only network providers can deliver ongoing treatment. Workers can search for providers at www.FindADoc.Lni.wa.gov; the directory is updated daily.
