Are Independent Medical Exams the same as Compulsory Medical Exams?

by | Jun 10, 2021

No.

An Independent Medical Examination (IME) is not the same as a Compulsory Medical Examination (CME). An IME is requested by an injured person’s own insurance company to suspend medical benefits or limit medical treatment. A CME, on the other hands, can be requested by either party’s insurance carrier, and they occur after litigation has begun as a means to defeat the lawsuit or mitigate the damages imposed on the at-fault party.
