The services of an Expert Medical Advisor (EMA) are necessary in cases of Workers Compensation claim disputes. Consulting an EMA can be required by law, especially when one party questions the treatments, or therapies of the physician.
In the state of Florida, for example, the roles and duties of an Expert Medical Advisor are defined in the Florida Statutes Section 440.13. This law necessitates that EMA’s must work with Judges of Compensation Claims (JCC) and the Division of Workers Compensation.
