Tender Overview

WorkCover conduct tenders every 3-5 years to appoint a panel of Suppliers to provide Independent Medical Examinations (IME).  The current IME panel was appointed in July 2018 and the current term will expire in June 2021.   There is a one year option available to WorkCover, however due to changes in requirements and specialty areas, the decision has been made not to extend the current panel.  A new panel will be formed as part of this tender.  

No current IME panel positions are carried over, and Suppliers must apply if they wish to provide (or continue to provide) IME services for WorkCover.  Current panel members should treat this application as if it was the first time applying; that is, provide succinct yet detailed responses and not rely on current panel member status.  This cannot be stressed enough.

Suppliers should assume that WorkCover has no prior knowledge of their business, experience or submission.

  1. Cardiology
  2. Dermatology
  3. Ear Nose and Throat
  4. General Surgeon
