IME, Is this legal?
Much Like Tim Belt stated;

Kansas Work Comp Regulations and Laws state;

‘‘Health care provider’’ means any person licensed, by the proper
licensing authority of this state, another state or the District of Columbia, to practice medicine and surgery, osteopathy, chiropractic, dentistry, op-tometry, podiatry, audiology or psychology."

I had an IME the other day. It actually took me longer to fill out the one page medical history than it took the Dr. to question me and give me the physical. If he goes against me should I inform my lawyer of the short duration of the exam?

When I went to my hearing on my rating dispute I was asked by the labor board how long my doctor preformed the exam and I told him that he was very thorough and that it lasted 1 1/2 hours and also he used every instrument that the AMA guideline asked him to use to record my testing.

When asked about the IME exam I mentioned how the doctor in his report wrote the wrong state that he saw me in and also how he only saw me for 10 mins. and did not use any equipment and just had looked at my hand and made me make a grip. They did not seem to care and found the IC doctor more credible. I was totally in shock that they would believe this doctor. He was known through the courts and I feel that is how he was more credible.

My doctor they had never met or see his name come through before so they had no idea how this doctor was. I feel that is how I lost my case but did not have a lawyer to back me up and I did not want to file an appeal.

I would suggest that you get a history of the medical schooling of this doctor that is doing this exam and also see how many he has done before for this insurance co. Get as much background information that you can for his credibility to preform these exams. How many times he was called up to do them for the IC etc. This would be good to have if you have a hearing to go to and you could present this if you dispute his agreement.
