Once you have made your choice of health care provider, you cannot change it without the permission of WSIB. A referral from one medical doctor to another in a different speciality is not considered a change in health care provider.
You may seek treatment from a different type of health care provider so long as you notify both your initial health care provider and WSIB. For example, if your initial choice was to go to your family doctor for treatment, and you later decide to see a chiropractor, you may do so as long as you tell both your doctor and WSIB. Your doctor remains in charge of your treatment.
