Earlier this year the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) and it’s Division of Workers Compensation (DWC) discussed the progress they’ve seen on the Department’s Independent Medical Review (IMR) program. An IMR is the dispute resolution process put together by the state’s workers’ compensation system. It is a panel of medical professionals who review decisions made by the insurance program.
- Decisions Overturned – 1.14%
- Decisions Partially Overturned – 0.80%
- Decisions Upheld – 7.26%
*this information is based on all 2018 completed decisions, not just denial or mods.
