Independent Medical Evaluation (IME)

  An Independent Medical Evaluation (IME) is an objective medical assessment performed by an approved physician. An IME addresses specific questions and includes a complete review of records, patient history and physical examination. The IME can provide a defensible medical opinion to aid in resolving difficult claim questions. 

Panel/Group Evaluation

 

A Panel/Group Evaluation is an IME when 2 or more physician specialists are required to address multiple body parts or diagnoses. 

Impairment Ratings


Permanent impairment ratings bring logic and quantifiable metrics to a medical claim, assessing a patient’s physical loss to the body. Our team delivers an accurate report that sheds light on the level of impairment, allowing your team to deliver the best resolution for the claim.

Medical File Review

 

Medical file reviews are comprehensive, cost-efficient reviews of medical records performed by an appropriate medical specialist to assess the current medical status of a claim. 

Second Opinion


Second opinions are utilized when another opinion is sought to help clarify specific questions about the current
course of medical treatment or recommended treatment/testing. 

Functional Capacity Evaluation Coordination

 A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) quantitatively defines an individual’s current function level. This comprehensive testing uses objectively gathered data to assess and determine function that is safe, reliable and defensible.
