Independent Medical Evaluations


Telehealth Independent Medical Evaluations

An independent medical evaluation involves an appraisal of your existing medical condition and treatment by a physician who is not your primary caregiver. This examining doctor is not affiliated with the entity requesting the evaluation and has no involvement in your case management.

The doctor conducting your independent medical evaluation is skilled at easing anxiety. During the assessment, you’ll be asked about your medical history and general life questions. Your answers will be respected, and it’s fine to admit it when you’re unsure.
