What qualifications/ requirements do I need to perform an IME?

Medical Specialists must be in good standing with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada with valid FRCP(C) or FRCS(C) designation in the specialty in which they are performing the service.


The provider should be an acknowledged expert in his/her field and should be committed to high standards of service. He/she must be able to perform examinations in a timely fashion, providing complete, concise reports, which attempt to clearly answer all questions asked. The provider should be committed to integrity and objectivity, and must be above reproach in this regard. Our providers must be compassionate to and considerate of each claimant.


Once the IME is completed is it ok to treat or contact the claimant?

After an IME, the examiner should not agree to treat the claimant, as such treatment would change the provider's role to one where they must act on behalf of the claimant in the traditional doctor/patient relationship, and would therefore no longer be considered by the insurer or employer to be independent.
