QME Examiners in California

In the California Workers Comp system QME examiners are licensed doctors  appointed for 2 year terms by the Administrative

Director of the Workers Compensation Board. Doctors are appointed in each medical specialty.

 

I list of doctors in every specialty can be found here.

A QME examiner is paid by the Board to determine whether a worker needs future care as a result of a work related injury.

The QME doctor will examine the worker, take a history and then do a comprehensive  medical-legal evaluation.

There are statutes that specify exactly what physicians are qualified to be QME Doctors.

Each physician performing a medical evaluation in a workers compensation case in California must have a QME certificate.
