If you’ve been hurt at work in Idaho, the work comp insurance company may schedule you for an “independent medical evaluation” or IME.
There is nothing independent about the medical evaluation. It is more of an insurance medical evaluation. The doctor will be hand-picked by the insurance company.
If your Idaho workers compensation insurance adjuster schedules you for an “insurance medical evaluation,” then your compensation and medical benefits may be terminated.
Insurance company doctors often focus on pre-existing conditions, prior injuries, or say that injuries you feel were caused by your Idaho work unjury are unrelated to the Idaho work accident.
Our attorneys are familiar with most of the doctors in Idaho hired by workers compensation insurance carriers. If you have lost your Idaho workers compensation benefits because of an insurance medical evaluation, or if you have been scheduled for an insurance medical evaluation, contact an experienced Idaho workers compensation attorney to help protect your rights.
