Director of Client Services Brooke Birkey gives you some straight shooting on the "Independent" Medical Exams when it comes to a workers' compensation claim or a long-term disability claim.

IME stands for Independent Medical Examination. This is when an employer or insurance company schedules a medical examination for you with a doctor of their choosing. Although insurance companies call an IME an “Independent Medical Examination,” you shouldn’t. There honestly isn’t anything independent about the IME.
