RE: EME
Are you sure that it isn't an IME (independent medical exam) used at the end of your claim to see how disabled you are (if you are at all) so that talks for settlement can begin ???

RE: EME
All that I could Find on Google is that an EME is an "Employer Medical Examination". How it Pertains to Your Case is Unclear, I saw it Referenced in Alaska and Mississippi. I Wish I knew More, but Maybe Your Attorney or Adjuster for w/c could Explain Better for You. Best of Luck!!Wink

RE: EME
I think, not positive that an EME is just another term for an IME> Could depend on the state. Right before I returned to work after my first lumbar injury I spoke to my HR dept about my immediate supervisor keeping me from coming back to work for over a year for no reason. We agreed that she would take care of things. I had never in 18 months had an IME> I rec'd notice that I had an IME scheduled at my employers request. Of course the Dr. found nothing wrong because at that point i was totally healed. I returned to work within two weeks of the seeing him. Same thing IME...EME... One the IC schedules and one the employer requests. In my case the employer and IC were all the same. I think states use different terms.

Yep I just double checked. Its an EME. I live in Mississippi and had one done already. Now I have to go to one WC has for me. There was no stress test done. Just mainly questions about my accident. Just wondering what the difference was.

RE: EME
Employer Medical Examination (EME)

Is the correct term for Mississippi.

Very close to the same as an IME.
