A medical provider network is a network of providers, including physicians, created to provide medical treatment for work injuries of employees in California. An MPN must be approved by the California Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) before it can be used. Unless exempted by law or the employer, all medical care for workers injured on the job whose employer has an approved MPN will be handled and provided though the MPN.

The Hortica MPN participating provider listing can be accessed here.
