Do I Have To Go To The Independent Medical Examination (IME) Requested By The Carrier?

1 mins reading time

Yes. The carrier has the right to obtain an opinion from their own consultants on your diagnosis, the degree of disability, and the need for treatment. The carrier should give you at least two weeks’ notice to attend the appointment with their doctor and it should be in a convenient location to your home. You do have a right to videotape this examination and we recommend that you do so. Although their consultant is labeled as an independent medical examiner, he is certainly not independent because he has been hired by the carrier.
