California Regulations 49.8 59
§ Psychiatric evaluation
A medical evaluation concerning a claim for psychiatric injury (whether specific or cumulative in nature) shall not be completed by a QME in less than one hour of face to face time. One hour is considered the minimum allowable face to face time for an uncomplicated evaluation. The evaluator shall state in the evaluation report that he or she has complied with these guidelines and explain in detail any variance.
