Frequently asked questions (FAQs) for Medical Provider Network (MPN) applicants
and list of approved MPNs to be established

DWC has posted a series of frequently asked questions on Medical Provider Networks to help with the MPN application process. "We hope these common questions and responses will help self-insured employers, carriers, third party administrators and networks better understand the MPN application process," said Administrative Director Andrea Lynn Hoch. The new MPN FAQs can be found at http://www.dir.ca.gov/dwc/MPN/DWC_MPN_FAQ.html.

As MPNs begin to be approved, DWC will post a list of "Approved MPNs" on its website.
