Independent Medical Examinations (IMEs)

IMEs are "independent medical examinations," but they are NOT independent.  Insurance companies choose one of their "preferred" doctors and pay them to write a report about you.  The reports are always written in favor of the insurance companies.  There are many things you can do to protect yourself during these exams.  Check out this IME Bill of Rights for some good tips:

IME Bill of Rights

Keep these points in mind about IME doctors: 
  • They are NOT your friends
  • They are NOT there to help you; they are being paid to provide a report that benefits the insurance company
  • They are NOT allowed to cause you physical harm during the exam
  • They CANNOT use the exam time as a deposition.  The time should be spent discussing your symptoms and medical history and conducting the medical examination.  They should NOT be discussing the facts of your lawsuit.
  • They are NOT allowed to abuse you or harass you or commit any crimes against you.
  • Protect yourself during the exam by having a witness and, if allowed, audiotape or videotape the session
