Orthopedic AME and add on panels (California)

Postby lacompfun on Fri Sep 14, 2018 10:30 am

Scenario:

Parties are going to Orthopedic AME on a basic knee injury case.

AA wants to add language to the AME letter stating in essence is applicant claiming body parts outside your orthopedic expertise and if so your suggestion for the specialties for the evaluations.

This seems to open a can of worms as to other body parts or systems

Question:

Are the parties suppose to post the above question to orthopedic AME?

If so labor code or regulation that applies.
