Independent Medical Exams
Independent Medical Examinations (IME)
for Insurance and Worker's Compensation
With many insurance and worker's compensation claims an Independent Medical Examination is required. Riverside WorForce Health Services offers an independent un-bias diagnosis of work-related injuries. This examination is known as an Independent Medical Examination, or simply IME. An IME is the examination of a patient by a physician who has not previously been involved in the patient’s care. IMEs may be performed to establish the cause, extent, and the proper medical treatment associated with a work-related injury. IME’s may also be performed to establish whether a patient has reached the maximum benefit from treatment and whether any permanent impairments may remain after the treatment.
