MPN and Specialty Access rules (California)

AA picks a specialist in pain management.

Title 8 CCR 9767.5 Access standards. Seems a bit vague.

So is the rule:

1. Defense has to have 3 pain management specialists within 15 miles / 30 minutes of applicant work or residence

OR

2. A ptp within 15 miles / 30 minutes AND Pain Management specialist list of three within 60 minutes or 30 miles of residence or work.

Number 1 - 3 of each kind of specialty within a reasonable geographic distance.
