New independent medical examinations panel

WorkCover Queensland has now completed the open tender process to appoint a new independent medical examinations (IME) panel, effective from 1 July 2021.

The IME panel is a team of medical professionals who provide WorkCover with additional information or clarification on specific medical aspects of a worker’s injury, and/or to provide workers with a permanent impairment assessment.

We have expanded our panel from 131 to 165 providers, with a broader regional presence across the state and increased representation of the following specialisations:

  • ear, nose and throat
  • occupational physicians
  • orthopaedics
  • psychiatry
  • urology.

The full IME panel list is now available on our website.

Thank you to all providers who submitted applications during the tender process.
