Q:
I have a stipulated claim with an award for future medical care, am I still subject to Independent Medical Review (IMR)?

A:

Yes.  As of 7/1/13 IMR is applicable to all dates of injury.  The future medical award entitles you to receive future medical treatment, but unfortunately the way that benefit is administered is subject to changes in the laws, such as SB-863, the senate bill that enacted IMR as the appeal process following a UR denial.
