Integral Consulting Quality Independent Medical Evalutation (IME) Services

Integral provides a variety of Independent Medical Evaluation services which are unsurpassed in the industry.  We tailor each of our offerings specifically to the needs of different types of claims, claims offices, and claims representatives.

Pain Management Record Reviews

The overuse and abuse of pain medications is a major concern in society and in claims particularly.

Integral is offering Pharmaceutical Reviews. These Record/Peer Reviews are conducted by Pain Management physicians, and are done in accordance with evidence-based medical sources, including the New York State Workers Compensation Board Non-Acute Pain Medical Guidelines, with an eye toward assuring that a claimant’s use of pain medications is appropriate and safe.

They may also include discussion of Morphine Equivalent Dosages, weaning schedules, use of generic equivalents, and other relevant issues. Supporting medical evidence can be appended as well, and our specialty is Rushes.

New York State Workers Compensation

In March 2001, WCL Section 137 regulations were put into effect by the New York State Workers Compensation Board. Integral Consulting Services is authorized by the Board to conduct Independent Medical Evaluations under authorization # 010007. Even these years later, some independent medical examination vendors struggle to be in compliance with these regulations. A precluded report is a tremendous waste of time and money for the carrier.
Integral specializes in New York State Workers Compensation cases and we have automated and refined our procedures to ensure compliance. We stake our reputation every day with every examination.
