You may choose the physician who treats you. Your designated physician is responsible for the coordination of your medical care and may refer you to consulting or treating physicians as required. You may not change your designated physician more than once without KESA’s consent.
If you receive any medical bills, please forward them to KESA for payment. Please keep in mind that the medical provider is required to accept a fee in accordance with the Kentucky Medical Fee Schedule, the Kentucky Hospital Fee Schedule, or the Kentucky Prescription Fee Schedule and is not allowed to bill the injured worker or the employer for the difference.
Most pharmacies will bill KESA directly for drugs prescribed by the authorized physician. If you or your employer pays for a prescription, verify that the prescription is billed per the Kentucky Prescription Fee Schedule and then send the receipt to KESA for reimbursement.
