Do I have to attend their IME (Independent Medical Exam)?

Yes. During the life of the claim the insurance company can require you to attend three IME’s. If they want you to attend any additional ones they need to request permission through Workers’ Compensation Department. If you get an IME notice, we have a video tape that you can watch which will explain the Independent Medical Exam. Call your appropriate Legal Assistant and she will set up an appointment.
