Frequently Asked Questions

Dr. Cohen will gladly confer with you about any additional questions. Please contact us.

To be considered for our network, ICCN asks that you submit several documents including, but not limited to, C.V., Fee Schedule, Proof of License and insurance, and redacted sample report. All potential providers will be reviewed for a history of appropriate ethical and professional standards.

Being a part of our network does not guarantee any referrals. Referrals are based on the referring party’s specifications, specialty requested, and location of claimants, among other factors.

If you are contacted about your interest and availability to conduct a specific IME, ICCN’s President, Dr. Lori Cohen, will also contact you in order to share information about ICCN’s processes and to offer you an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have. You will then work with an assigned IME administrator for the entire evaluation process. Your ICCN contact will work with you on scheduling, acquisition of records, Peer Review or IME questions, meeting room reservations, if needed, and the billing process. We are here to assist you.

ICCN does not set rates for IMEs. The expert providers set their own rates for the evaluations.

On average, most IMEs require a 3-4 week scheduling time due to notification requirements for all parties. In some instances, a case may need to have an expedited evaluation timeline which will be communicated to you by ICCN at the onset of scheduling.

While most referring parties request a 2-week turn-around time from the date of the IME, there are exceptions. Some request a more expedited turn-around time, which you would be advised of prior to solidifying IME arrangements. If you require additional time to complete the report due to unforeseen circumstances, you are asked to submit an explanation for the delay ASAP so that ICCN may advise the referring party.

We respect and appreciate the unique skills of our IME providers, and do not require that a template be followed. However, we do have general recommendations for areas of inquiry for the evaluation, and we do require that you address the specific questions asked of you in the report.

You are responsible for arranging your own transportation to and from the IME location. ICCN will make meeting room arrangements and, if needed, guest room accommodations for you as well.

We request that you wait on site for 1 hour in case the claimant has been temporarily delayed by traffic or scheduling conflicts. We require that you contact ICCN within ten or fifteen minutes if a claimant does not appear for the start time of the IME. This enables us to contact the insurer who may then either confirm the claimant’s intent to attend, or confirm the need to reschedule.

Payment systems vary from insurer to insurer. ICCN provides payment information and contact details to you for each case.
