Casualty IMEs and Peer Reviews
United Review Services provides IMEs, Second Medical Opinions and Peer Review
programs for Auto, Liability and Workers' Compensation clients. Our IMEs and
Peer Reviews provide truly independent opinions because we select independent
practicing physicians within a claimant’s geographic area.
Our IMEs and Peer review address specific areas of inquiry. Whether you are
asking about maximum medical improvement, ability to return to work, permanency,
further treatment or special questions relating to your claim, our role is to
make sure that these questions are addressed fully.
Our specialized IME Coordinators handle each IME and Peer Review from
referral to completion, providing a single point of contact for all parties.
Referrers can contact the assigned IME Coordinator at any time to ask questions
or discuss issues. We handle all correspondence, custom letters, scheduling,
re-scheduling, e-mail notifications (if requested), attorney contacts and all
other aspects of each IME. We realize the importance of a timely exam and
report, so we adhere to the following timeframes from the date of referral:
- Appointment Setup: 48 hours
- Examination: 10 to 15 days
- IME Completion: 4 to 6 weeks
- Peer Reviews: 2 weeks
- Rush Referrals: No Problem!
