Clear Entire Form
I request approval as an independent medical examiner. I will provide independent and
objective medical decisions in all cases that come before me. I will decline a request to conduct an
independent medical examination if I have a conflict of interest for any reason. I agree to
conduct a Division Independent Medical Examination between 45 and 75 calendar days from request.
I agree to submit a report to the Division and both parties as marked on the DIME Application within 20
calendar days of the examination of the claimant. This report will include the DIME
Examiners Worksheet, my written report, and the applicable AMA Guides worksheets. I
understand my performance will be measured by the quality of my examination and reports, and
not by whether my recommendations are perceived as favorable or unfavorable to the parties involved.
I have read and understand all of Rule 11, which describes the Division Independent Medical
Examination program.
I accept that examinations performed for the Division of Workers’ Compensation are paid according to
fees set by the Division of Workers’ Compensation.
