Trust in Workers’ Compensation Insurance Company Doctors Misplaced?

An article in the New York Times, talking about how insurance company’s “Independent Medical Examiners” (IME) may not be acting truthfully, hit home to me. Though the article deals specifically with New York workers’ comp, their system is close enough to Pennsylvania’s that comparisons are valid.

While I urge folks to read the entire article, the part that was my absolute favorite was the insurance company doctor who said, “If you did a truly pure report, you’d be out on your ears and the insurers wouldn’t pay for it. You have to give them what they want, or you’re in Florida. That’s the game, baby.”
