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 ???

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

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.

Employer Medical Examination (EME)

Is the correct term for Mississippi.

Very close to the same as an IME.

THE EME IS WHAT THE EMPLOYER, THEIR INSURANCE COMPANY, THE NURSE CASE MANAGER, AND THEIR DOCTOR IS GOING TO USE TO TELL ALL KINDS OF LIES ON YOU USE IT TO TRY TO FRAME YOU LIKE YOU WERE NEVER INJURED ON THE JOB.

THE IME IS WHAT YOU, YOUR DOCTOR AND YOUR LAWYER NEEDS TO WIN YOUR CASE. THE IME IS GOING TO STATE THE TRUTH ABOUT YOUR CONDITION.

Are you represented by an attorney? FCE and EME are both employer/insurance biased exams. As the person before me stated you need a QME (Qualified Medical Evaluation). Your case will be provided with three doctor choices (in CA), your lawyer says no to one, the opposing legal team says no to another and then you go to the one left over. Your QME becomes "the bible" for treatment and total body impairment rating. It also determined if you are temporary or permanently disabled. If you have depression/anxiety that is injury related you can also request a PQME to be done by psychiatrist. These documents are used in court to determine settlement amounts, settle treatment disputes, and to give treatment guidelines to your primary treating physician. If you don't have an attorney I recommend getting one. Even the nicest insurance adjuster won't have your best interest at heart (and I haven't dealt with any nice ones).

Unasked for advice: Be CAREFUL when choosing an attorney. I would recommend shopping around, checking reviews/ratings and be willing to have a lawyer outside of your town. Small town lawyers get bogged down and miss a lot in my experience.
