Our Independent Medical Examinations (IME) provide expert information to assist with workers compensation injury and claims management. At Medical by Altius we retain weekly availability with medical practitioners across a range of specialties so that we are able to respond to your needs with accurate, timely information and assessments.

It is appropriate to be referred for an IME when information from the treating medical practitioner, or practitioners, is inadequate, unavailable or inconsistent and where the referrer has been unable to resolve the issues related to the problem directly with the practitioners.

For those who seek to resolve barriers in relation to return to work and difficulties in communicating with a treating doctor, it may be best to consult an Injury Management Consultant.
