Requirements:

An Independent Examiner (IE) is a doctor of chiropractic, who also conducts a physical examination of a patient or a review of records for the purpose of generating a report or opinion to aid a reparation obligor. . . regarding the condition or further treatment of the patient. . . (A reparation obligor in this case generally means an insurance company paying benefits for a patient who has been injured in an automobile accident.) Minn. Stat. § 148.09 and Minn. Rule 2500.1160 has placed certain requirements on those doctors of chiropractic wishing to perform these services.

Independent Examiner Registration Requirement

In general, those persons wishing to perform this service must be licensed to practice in Minnesota and have been in practice for the two years immediately preceding registration. Additionally, they must either be a full time instructor at a chiropractic college or have been involved in direct patient care for 50 percent of the time spent in practice for the two years immediately preceding the examination of a patient. In addition, the IE is prohibited from accepting a fee in excess of $500 for the exam conducted. Any registration must precede an examination by at least thirty days. See Independent Examiner Application or call the Board office at 651-201-2850 for an application. The application must be accompanied by the appropriate fee. Applications must be approved 30 days prior to performance of the first independent examination.

 Licensees wishing to continue performing independent examinations, must submit Independent Examiner Application.
