Certified Physician Program

Registration Resumes  November 1, 2023

CPP Resumes Operations on November 1, 2023.

The Certified Physician Program rules have been approved by the Tennessee Attorney General’s office and the Government Operations Committee of the Tennessee General Assembly. The  Certified Physician Program will resume normal operations on November 1, 2023. At that time, physicians will be able to register for the online “Best Practices for Treating and Evaluating Injured Workers” and apply for an appointment to the CPP Registry.

Owing to the pause in the program, previously appointed physicians will begin their term anew on November 1, 2023. At that time, they will also be eligible to receive the enhanced fees in accordance with the Medical Fee Schedule.
