Can Sedgwick require an independent medical examination (IME)?

Yes. The Workers' Disability Compensation Act provides that, from time to time, you must present yourself for an IME if requested by Sedgwick. If you do not participate in the scheduled IME you will risk having your worker’s compensation benefits suspended. If the scheduled appointment conflicts with a previously scheduled medical appointment, you should contact your claim adjuster to work out a better date and time.
