The insurer brought a motion requesting that the claimant’s application for IRBs be barred under s. 55(1) due to IE non-attendance. The claimant had failed to attend a post 104-week physiatry IE on four occasions. Adjudicator Mazerolle found that the Notice of Examination provided sufficient medical and other reasons for the examination under s. 44. Nonetheless, he exercised his discretion permitted under s. 55(2) to allow the IRB claim to continue. He found that the claimant had participated in other IEs, which demonstrated her interest to pursue the claim. He noted that two of the missed four IEs had been postponed due to COVID-related concerns, and that the claimant had been ill for the most recently rescheduled IE. Above all, Adjudicator Mazerolle found that the parties had enough time before the hearing to reschedule and complete the IE and ordered that the IRB claim proceed.
