Independent Medical Evaluations

At Atlantic OccuPsych, we work with employers, attorneys, risk managers and workers compensation adjusters to provide expert comment on injury causation, treatment intervention needs to mitigate impairment scenarios, and highly competent independent medical exam and evaluation (IME) services.

What is an IME?

An IME can help to identify the cause of an alleged injury as well as potential pre-existing or unrelated factors impacting psychological adjustment. In addition, an IME can map out possible treatment interventions or provide an expert opinion regarding a person achieving maximum medical improvement. The evaluator draws upon interviews, a thorough review of background information and medical records, and objective, scientifically validated psychological testing to create a complete picture that can help guide decision making around workers compensation or civil legal matters.
