The claimant sought a catastrophic impairment designation and entitlement to various medical benefits and attendant care benefits. The insurer argued that the claimant was barred from disputing entitlement because an earlier hearing regarding NEBs already concluded that the claimant did not suffer the majority of the injuries or impairments allegedly sustained in the accident. The insurer also argued that the claim for ACBs was barred due to the claimant’s failure to participate in an IE, as the claimant had put conditions on her attendance, including the presence of her own occupational therapist. In response, the claimant argued that the current dispute was for different benefits, and as such, the earlier decision on NEBs was irrelevant. The claimant also argued that she ought to be permitted to have her own occupational therapist observe the in-home assessment requested by the insurer. Vice Chair Flude agreed with the insurer and held that the claimant’s current application was barred by res judicata. Although the specific benefits and designation at issue were different than the NEB hearing, the findings of fact in the NEB hearing were so closely related that to allow the claimant’s application to proceed would amount to an abuse of process. Vice Chair Flude also held that the claimant could not impose conditions on her attendance and participation in the requested in-home IE. The insurer met all requirements of section 44 when requesting the IE. As such, the claimant’s failure to participate in the format requested by the insurer triggered section 55. Vice Chair Flude dismissed the dispute in relation to a catastrophic impairment, and stayed the dispute in relation to ACBs until the claimant participated in the in-home IE.
