The CNA California Medical Provider Network (MPN) is a workers' compensation program that is jointly delivered by CNA and Coventry Health Care (Coventry), a nationally recognized healthcare company that CNA partners with for workers' compensation medical and occupational services. The MPN will be delivered through Coventry's network of medical providers and facilities. This network has been built to provide injured employees with timely and quality medical care and is available to assist the injured worker in returning to his or her prior health.
In order to provide injured employees with access to the MPN, employers must:
Employees may also designate a treating physician prior to any injury, if certain criteria are met, and if the employee completes the Predesignation of Personal Physician form prior to an injury. If the employee wants to designate a Chiropractor or an Acupuncturist, the employee must complete the Notice of Personal Chiropractor or Personal Acupuncturist prior to an injury.
These documents may be downloaded and printed as needed. However, these materials are only for the use by CNA insureds and are not to be reprinted by others.
Regarding the initial implementation of the MPN, please be advised that the regulations governing the MPN require the employer to take the above actions. Failure to meet the requirements may result in your inability to utilize the MPN.
