So, you have an AME/QME appointment, and you might be wondering what this means, if you need to prepare for it or what do you have to do.
An Agreed Medical Examiner (AME) and a Qualified Medical Examiner (QME) are doctors who will provide a Medical-Legal evaluation for your work comp claim. The difference between these is basically between the defense and applicant parties agreeing (AME) or not (QME) with one specific doctor. These evaluations are the foundation for the rest of your workers' compensation claim and hence it is important for you to be prepared.
