Independent Medical (General Practitioner) Evaluation

An Independent Medical Examination is an evaluation by a general practitioner. General practice is about caring for the whole person, and as such, general practitioners are ideally suited to comment on Medical and Rehabilitation Benefits when there is no evidence of orthopaedic injury, neurological injury or pre-existing conditions on file that would appear to warrant a specialist assessment,. Medical evaluations by general practitioners are appropriate when a review of a medical intervention proposal by the claimant’s treating practitioners is required, or if there may be pre-existing medical problems that would be outside the scope of a chiropractor or physiotherapist to comment as to their relevance to a claimant’s recovery. In addition, the general practitioner will make recommendations for other assessments or investigations, if
necessary.
