UNUM’s Use of “Independent Medical Examiners”

In an interesting article by Jane Lundy on October 28, 2009, Jane outlines the gains that Long Term Disability carriers, such as UNUM, play by using “independent examiners.” Independent doesn’t means independent, it means a doctor who, for whatever a reason, needs to make money to supplement their income and becomes a hired gun for Long Term Disability insurance companies like UNUM.

If you are being scheduled for an Independent Medical Evaluation in your Long Term Disability claim, you need to immediately call an experienced Long Term Disability and ERISA attorney who can assist you in understanding the “independent medical” process and help you protect yourself from bogus independent medical evaluations.
