Insuranceopedia explains Medical Examination

A medical examination involves checking the vital organs (such as the heart, liver, and kidneys) for defects and determining the right medication or treatment, if any. These examinations are conducted by a physician along with a team of other medical specialists.

An insurance company may require a medical examination before agreeing to issue certain insurance policies. Negative results from an examination may cause them to deny coverage.
