MSIA CE Webinar

IMEs in the Montana System

September 8th, 10am MDT

The next MSIA CE Webinar is set for September 8, starting at 10a MDT. This webinar will feature Clarus IME (formerly Wellcare), a Missoula based IME provider. Dr. Laura Kirsch, Ph.D. and Board Certified Forensic Psychologist, will go through the steps necessary to secure an IME and the process to make sure the physicians performing the IME understand the issues and address them. Dr. Kirsch has practiced in Montana since 2013.

One Montana CE credit for licensed claims examiners has been applied for and we expect it will be available.

This webinar is for anyone involved in the Montana claims process or medical treatment. The webinar is available to anyone interested in the Montana workers’ compensation system - claims professionals, attorneys, insurers, medical providers, labor and business interests.
