Independent Medical Examination [IME]
The IME is typically requested by an insurance company or employer as a second opinion regarding an individual’s fitness for duty, ability to return to work, or to determine functional limitations after an injury or illness. It is ordered by a physician or psychologist who has not previously been involved with the client’s treatment.
The neuropsychological IME may include assessment of
- Problem solving
- Academic skills
- Motor skills
- Motivation and cooperation
