Policy Statement for Delineation of
Independent Medical Evaulation (IME)
vs. Follow-Up Care


The RI Temporary Disability Insurance considers it generally inappropriate for a physician to perform an Independent Medical Evaluation (IME)/Independent Insurance Evaluation and to offer or serve as subsequent treating provider for a patient. If a physician who performs an IME is to serve as a treating provider then a sufficient span of time must elapse such that no reasonable individual could conclude a contingent relationship between the IME determination and the decision to pursue subsequent care with the IME physician or the IME physician's practice group.

Note: This TDI IME policy is consistent with the RI Department of Health's as posted on the DOH website at www.health.ri.gov
