1. Except as otherwise provided in this section, the Department of Corrections has control over the medical treatment of an offender, including the right to select a treating, consulting and rating physician or chiropractor, or both, and any other practitioner. An offender is not entitled to select a practitioner. As used in this subsection, “practitioner” has the meaning ascribed to it in NRS 439A.0195.
2. The Department of Corrections is not required to disclose in advance to the offender the date, time or location of any medical service.
3. The insurer may schedule any appropriate medical test, consultation or treatment in addition to those scheduled by the Department of Corrections, but shall do so in accordance with the security procedures of the Department of Corrections.
4. If the insurer schedules an evaluation to determine whether an offender has suffered a permanent partial disability, it must use a rating physician or chiropractor designated by the Administrator to determine the disability pursuant to NRS 616C.490, but it is not required to select the next physician or chiropractor according to the order in which their names appear on the list maintained by the Administrator.
5. If medication is prescribed for an offender, it must be retained and dispensed by the Department of Corrections.
