Worker’s Compensation and Auto Injury Cases and IMEs
For third-party administrators managing worker’s comp and auto injury cases, an independent medical examination can:
- Determine whether the claim is valid or questionable
- Determine if injured workers may be able to retire
- Determine the severity of a claimant’s disabilities for compensation purposes
- Provide a variance IME, or second opinion, if necessary
- Determine if one or more pre-existing injuries exist that exacerbate the injury
The IME Care Center provides objective reports on demand supported by quality assurance protocols that are in place before, during and after the exam. These procedures include provider credentialing and recruitment, appointment confirmation and notification, records analysis and retrieval and many other functions critical to superior IME services.
IMEs and Narrative Letters for TPAs
Narrative letters are detailed summaries about patients who have been examined by a physician at The IME Care Center. Covering a patient’s prognosis, diagnosis and treatment history, narrative letters are useful to third-party administrators, such as attorneys who need a strong prototype for an oral deposition or defense attorneys wanting to prove the validity of their client’s injuries or disabilities.
IMEs and Utilization Reviews for TPAs
Many third-party administrators contacting The IME Care Center require utilization reviews (URs) as part of their case management presentation. Meant to determine whether a certain treatment is necessary, a UR is composed of data culled from a person’s medical records that show unequivocally if requested medical services are inappropriate or reasonable and useful.
