A disability management services company has acquired an independent medical examination business in the Pacific Northwest.
The companies are not saying how much Genex paid.
Genex helps assess claimants and manage care for fully insured disability plans, self-insured disability plans and workers’ compensation insurers.
Objective Medical provides independent assessments of claimants’ health and ability to function.
Objective Medical was founded by Richard Nelson, a former Washington state Medicaid director. Nelson and his son, Steffen Nelson, will continue to run Objective Management, and Steffen Nelson will become part of the Genex management team, Genex says.
