I had my IME appointment a month ago. It was nearly 400 miles away. I requested travel expenses to be reimbursed, as I received a letter stating that I would be reimbursed 57.5 cents per mile, plus lodging and food. I have not heard anything from my "claims examiner." I am wondering how long it takes to receive the reimbursement and if anyone else has had any problems. On a side note, my claim was denied. Since I was denied, does that mean I will not be reimbursed travel expenses? My claim was denied because my torn ligament was due to "old age" rather than work-related. (I'm only 36 years old, and all I do is work at a fabric store. I don't think my "old age" has anything to do with the ligament.
