Assessments at Health First
The assessments can vary in length. This depends on the type of assessment and the complexity of your case. Functional Capacity Evaluations and Cost of Future Care assessments typically are a full day assessment. An Independent Medical Evaluation normally last from 2 hours up to 4 hours.
If you live one hour or more from the assessment location, we recommend that you stay at a friend’s house or hotel closer to the address. You may wish to have a friend or family member drop you off; however, they will not be able to stay with you during the assessment.
For the assessments, we advise you to wear comfortable and loose-fitting clothing. For some medical examinations and the functional capacity evaluations there is a physical element. We advise to wear or bring runners with you.
