Help Us Protect Your Right to Predesignate.

The right of injured workers, though out the state of California, to see the doctor of their choice if you’re injured on the job will vanish at the end of this year unless Senate bill, SB 186 (DeSaulnier), is approved by the Legislature and signed into law by the Governor. SB 186 would delete the existing pre-designation sunset date and maintain the right to pre-designate your own doctor.
Governor Schwarzenegger vetoed a similar bill last year. “If the proponents wish to try again next year to repeal the sunset, I encourage them to better demonstrate the need for this change,” the Governor said in his veto message.

It’s time to demonstrate to the Governor the need for SB 186. If you’ve had a positive experience seeing your own doctor for a work-related injury, please let us know how doing so has:

Improved your medical treatment,
Helped you get back on the job, or
Saved the system from conflict
