Independent Medical Exam (IME)
Our Independent Medical Examination (IME) service offers a vast network of fully credentialed, board-certified medical professionals from a myriad of specialties. Merit Medical provides value throughout the entire IME process meeting your case’s unique needs.
With every complex claim, the one thing that is required above all else is a trusted, impartial medical opinion.
Let Merit Medical connect you with one of our qualified physicians, and be the trusted resource you need.
In 2017, Merit Medical implemented Telemedicine IME using state-of-the-art technology to conveniently match our panel of experts to claimants across the state of Nebraska. With our Telemedicine IME, the claimant is physically accompanied by a skilled medical professional while the specialty expert facilitates the exam remotely via a high-resolution camera system. In some cases, multiple experts can remotely examine a claimant in a single visit.
Our telemedicine locations:

Medical Record Review
Our Medical Record Review service is performed by a board-certified physician within the specialty your case requires. Our experienced staff is committed to compiling the claimant’s medical history including all medical records, and medical imaging. The compiled records and information is assembled into a binder for the expert’s review and analysis. The expert then provides an in-depth objective report that addresses specific questions and determines what is necessary and reasonable medical care for the injured person.
Additionally, phone calls with the assigned expert can be scheduled to provide any further clarification.
