Rule 11: The DIMEs Are a-Changin'

The Colorado Division of Workers' Compensation’s Division Independent Medical Exam (DIME) Program has been in place with very little change since 1991 and is an essential function of our state’s workers’ compensation system. After three years of collaboration between stakeholders, the Division successfully adopted a new rule that addresses the key challenges of each stakeholder. The changes to Rule 11 are effective January 1, 2019, and can be found here.
