I am a bit confused. Who is ordering the examination?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
L & I claim is on my shoulder it's a IME & L & I ordering the IME & I think they want to look at my back which I'm receiving Social Security on , Do they have that right ?
Expert:  Phillips Esq. replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for the information. Regrettably, the IME can also include your back. Regrettably, they may be trying to show that your back is the problem and not your shoulder so that they could stop your payments. Legally, they are not limited to the examination of your shoulder.
