Supplying these dates is a legal requirement. Disputed Medical Issues and Conclusions: Complete this section by checking appropriate box and stating what page(s) or section of the medical legal report contain the narrative for details. If diagnostic or laboratory tests have been ordered and the results or a medical records request is pending, check that box.

Basis for Conclusions: Check appropriate box for each question on form.

Also, list the name and specialty for other physicians who provided information used in the medical legal report. Need for Additional Evaluation in Another Specialty: Labor Code section 4062.3 directs each evaluator to address all contested medical issues arising from all injuries reported on one or more claim forms prior to the evaluator's initial evaluation. Each evaluator is expected to address permanent impairment consistent with the AMA guides for the evaluator's specialty, or for disputed injuries to the psyche consistent with the global assessment of functioning (GAF) as directed in the 2005 Permanent Disability Schedule adopted by the Administrative Director effective 1/1/2005.

Declaration of Service of Medical Legal reports: Labor Code sections 139.2(j)(1)(A) and 4062.3 (i) and section 38 of Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations require the QME to serve the medical-legal report and this form on the claims administrator, or if none the employer, and the injured worker (except when section 36.5 of Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations applies) within 30 days from the commencement of the examination, unless certain conditions are met.
