What do you think? NO an independent examination is not independent but rather ADVERSE to your interests and those of your treating physicians.
I have previously posted on this issue months ago but it is such an important issue, I think it's necessary to discuss this issue once again. There is NEVER a good intention on the part of an insurance company in having you seen by THEIR doctor for an "independent" medical examination. The intent is to cut off your benefits and limit their exposure PERIOD!
As a former insurance company attorney I have schedule hundreds of "independent medical examinations" for injured workers. The term independent medical examination is not always accurate. Though there are reputable doctors who will perform a thorough examination and write a neutral report, there are many who will do and say almost anything. Many defense attorneys believe it is their job to chose the " doctors who will do and say almost anything"!
