How to reapply for your IME provider number

How IME requirements have changed

Here is a summary of revised administrative laws, effective March 1, 2013:

  • All providers must reapply in the first year of the new rule.
  • A firm's medical director must be an approved IME examiner.
  • If examiners provide fewer than 768 hours per year of patient-related services, they must submit documentation showing fulfilled continuing education (CE) hours as required for their respective state licensure. The credits must be relevant either to IMEs or to keeping current in their specialty.
  • Examiners may have until March 1, 2014 to comply with the new continuing education (CE) documentation requirement.
  • Additional credentialing standards, similar to most health plans in the state.
