Independent medical examiner

Independent medical examiners are registered medical practitioners with qualifications relevant to the worker’s injury.

The worker, their legal representative, or the insurer can request an independent medical examiner to review medical information and/or examine the worker, when information from the doctor is unavailable, inadequate, or inconsistent, or when the insurer has been unable to resolve issues after discussion with the doctor, and/or after the involvement of an injury management consultant.
