Never attend any medical or psychiatric evaluation on behalf of the DBA insurance company without your lawyer or an advocate that your attorney provides and
Never attend one of these without a videographer.
The Insurance Company may have you see a doctor of their choice for a second opinion. While you must attend these you are not a criminal and you have many rights that are being ignored at your expense by YOUR attorneys, the DoL, and the ALJ”s. Your attorney should be assisting you with this and not sending you off to DME’s ill prepared.
This is especially important if you are a TBI or PTSD patient. You will need an advocate with you at all times who is able to protect you from inappropriate questioning and intimidation tactics. Psychiatric DME’s are normally little more than interrogations designed to undermine your integrity.
You are required to attend, you must cooperate within the “scope and purpose” of the examination as it relates to the aspect of your claim you are being examined for.
Your lawyer, your advocate, and your video of the examination are your only defense against manipulative and deceitful Doctors who are paid by insurance companies to help deny your claim.
Shame on you DBA attorneys who send your unsuspecting clients into these ambushes blind, far from their geographic area, without the scope and purpose of the examination clearly defined, on short notice and without even checking the credentials and backgrounds of these insurance company whores.
And even more worrisome are the ALJ’s, Paul C Johnson is one, who set aside the rights afforded the claimant under the very rules and regulations used to set up these deceitful exams on behalf of the insurance company.
Never attend an Insurance Company Second Opinion Unarmed
