Physician Panels

Virginia law requires that an employer offer a panel of at least three physicians to the injured employee for the purpose of providing medical treatment to work related injuries or diseases. If you do not have a panel, refer to the PPO Network provided by MCI. The program also has a second tier Occupational Specialty Network. See below for a copy of the most recent update of this specialty PPO.

If you need assistance in setting up a panel, please contact Client Services in one of two ways:

1. Call 800-734-4460 or email

2. Call Chad Smith at 804-786-2311 or LaTarsha McMahand at 804-786-2310.
