Q:
How long do I have to wait after submitting my Independent Medical Review (IMR) application before I will have a decision?

A:

Typically the IMR process will take approximately 6-8 weeks, potentially longer if the IMR reviewer needs additional records.  Currently, however, the DWC and Maximus have received such a high volume of IMR requests that the process is taking approximately 3-4  months.  We should see this process begin to speed up as both organizations become better equipped to handle the volume of requests.
