In Illinois, the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Company uses an Independent Medical Exam to support its cases against you.

Do you have to go to the exam?

Do you have to go to more than one exam?

Yes, the Illinois Workers Compensation Law requires you to go to the IME exam. If you do not go, then the insurance company has grounds to stop paying you. Or your case could be denied if you refuse to go.

If the IME doctor agrees that your injury is work related, then the insurance company will usually settle with you.

If the IME doctor says your injury is not work related, then you are most likely in for a fight.
