What is an insurer examination? by Patricia Santucci

Your insurance company can send you to an insurer examination, which is with an independent examiner. They do this in order to obtain an opinion on your condition and/or the treatment that you require to get better. The insurer examinations are conducted by regulated health professionals. Your insurance company is obligated to send you a copy of the report within 10 business days of the receipt of the report from the regulated health professional who conducted the insurer examination. You are required to attend the examination if you wish to receive benefits. If you refuse to attend, your insurance company has the right to deny your claim or cut off your benefits, on the basis of non-compliance. (70)
