Independent Medical Evaluation (IME)
An Independent Medical Evaluation (IME) is an objective medical assessment performed by an approved physician. An IME addresses specific questions and includes a complete review of records, patient history and physical examination. The IME can provide a defensible medical opinion to aid in resolving difficult claim questions.
