Independent Medical Examinations

Well first I have to express my confusion with the use of the word ‘independent’ in an insurance system. Independent from who? Independent for who? And why, in my case, am I, the injured worker, being ‘independently‘ examined? I’m not confused about my therapies, treatments, reports and diagnosis, I know what my situation is… if the insurer or insurer’s superior has an issue with any of this info then shouldn’t my practitioners be assessed? And imagine, this wouldn’t have to be done often, certainly works for injured people, might even prevent them getting worse (hello, are the Gods of Government reading this?), eliminate shonky practitioners, and make insurance companies cough up to their responsibilities (well more like throwing up for them).

But back to the point of this post. I just wanted to show everyone how I feel after an ‘independent‘ medical examination…
