Bailey Southwell & Co., LLC – June 01, 2016 – Bailey Southwell & Co., LLC (BSC) is proud to announce the completion of the sale of Med-Eval, Inc. (Med-Eval), a leading provider of independent medical examination (IME) and diagnostic network services for the workers’ compensation and automotive claims market, to Genex Services, LLC (Genex), a leader in medical cost containment and disability management services.
