Home / Resources / What is an Independent Medical Records Review?

Medical Records Reviews are the examination and evaluation of records relating to a person’s condition or injury. Attorneys, insurance adjustors and others interested in determining the status of an injured party utilize record reviews.  Records Reviews can address some of the same issues as an IME but usually focus on medical necessity and reasonableness of medical care.

Independent Records Reviews cover all facets of a case or claim including medical necessity reviews, imaging reviews, peer file reviews, return to work negotiation, and pharmacy medical necessity reviews.
