Please see documents below. When you apply for Social Security Disability in NY you must submit to an exam at IMA. They make the final decision or your claim. Upon entering you are given a clipboard of forms to fill out, date and sign. Medical info, a form saying you will not film or record anything ( they will take you phone away if they suspect you are) and the form below asking you to become a test subject for investigational drugs for pharmaceutical companies. This is BEFORE you go in for your exam. This was quite scary. On the back it says you canh recieve free medical care and posiibly be paid which is appealing if you are ill and you have been out of work for months. Then if you recieve a denial you might be so in need of care and money you would submit to anything. How can these doctors who exam you and have access to ALL of your medical records make an unbiased judgement about your disability when they openly ask you to be a test subject BEFORE they even do your exam. I cannot believe that NY State is invoved with this practise and I think that everyone who had there disability decision done by these doctors should have someone investigate why NY is using IMA Research to make disability decisions.

When you apply for Social Security Disability in NY you are being sent to an IMA doctor. It is mandatory if you want to be considered for disability. What they are not telling you beforehand is that IMA is also IMA Research. Please see the documents below. Upon entering you are given a clipboard with forms to fill out. You must submit all of your medical information, sign a paper that you will not film or record ANYTHING said or done to you there and they can take your cell phone away if they think you are using it. You are also given the form below BEFORE you see the doctor. They ask everyone to fill it out. I said I wanted to think about, so I took mine home. Another man said he did not want to and they joked that you could have free medical care & possibly get paid to participate. It says that on the back of the form. I would like to know how these doctors can possibly make an UNBIASED medical evaluation about mine or anyones disability when they tell you BEFORE you even enter the exam office that they want you to submit to medical testing for investigational drugs for pharmaceutical companies? They do put a disclaimer on the form.. see below but why on earth would NY State even condone or send you here unless they are trying to find test subjects for these pharmacies? I think every disability claim that has been done here should be investigated by someone because if you are denied you would have been out of work and had no resourses and you might do this just to get medical care or money and they would know that fact. I have blocked out my info for obvious reasons.
