    LAUSD has a state approved medical provider network (MPN). A MPN is a network of physicians, specialists, and providers created to deliver expert care to injured workers. All treatment for work related injuries /illnesses must be obtained from a physician within the MPN, unless an employee has pre-designated a treating physician prior to the injury.
