Medical Adjudicator Qualifications


#1

Can anyone here explain to me:

What qualifications does the CPPD Medical Adjudicators have to decide on a case?
Also is a single adjudicator assigned to each case as opposed to two or three opinions?

I have no idea if the Adjudicators are of the same group as the EI adjudicators. I do know only one SSTribual person decides my fate in my EI battle. Seems a little unfair when your arguing grey he said she said issues.

I have no idea.
I think medical adjudicators are nurses.

CPP disability medical adjudicators have to have a health professions degree, and I believe nursing is the preferred degree. Your case would be handled by a single adjudicator who would report to claims manager.

The difference with EI is that I don’t believe those adjudicators have any medical training or background.
