Do I have to pay for an Independent Medical Exam?

by | Jun 10, 2021


Fortunately, you do not have to pay an insurance-requested Independent Medical Examination (IME). The insurance company must pay for the Independent Medical Examination, and they must give you sufficient notice of any upcoming examination so you can make arrangements to attend.

In addition, the insurance company cannot make you travel unreasonable distances to attend the IME. They are required, unless no physician exists, to select an IME physician that is in the municipality where you are receiving treatment or in a location reasonably accessible to you (that is, within 10 miles from your residence).
