*UPDATE Employee ..inside information: Response from CME
Qualified Medical Examiners Beware!!!
California Medical Evaluators (aka CME) and its owner, Gabor Vari, are being investigated for insurance fraud and are the reason over a dozen of its doctors have lost their QME license.
I used to be a QME with California Medical Evaluators. I did not hear great things about the service or its owners but I was convinced by a colleague of mine that it was easier to go with a management company to handle my workers compensation evaluations. Shame on me for not going with my gut feeling.
My QME license was up for 2 year renewal and it was denied because of California Medical Evaluators. CME claims to be a management company. They handle all of the doctors billings for workers compensation reports. The doctor completes an evaluation, writes a report, sends it to the company and they send it to the workers compensation carrier with a bill. I used to always ask to see the final reports before they went to the insurance company but they would rarely send them to me. On the few ocassions that they sent the reports to me, I realized they had incorrectly billed my time (either upcoded it or billed it as a different type of evaluation). On many ocassions I asked California Medical Evaluators and Gabor Vari to fix bills I knew were submitted incorrectly. They refused to fix them. I ultimately decided to leave CME but it was too late and when the Division of Workers Compensation audted me - CME submitted reports without my approval and I lost my license.
I personally know of 5 other doctors with the company that have lost their QME license and currently 8 other doctors are being audited because of California Medical Evaluators.
Be very very careful with these guys. You don't want to be the next person to lose your license.
