28 Aug ATTENTION WORKERS COMPENSATION PATIENTS
If you have or have had a work related injury, you need to read this.
ALL worker’s compensation patients have the right to a Permanent Partial Impairment Rating, (PPI rating).
A PPI rating is a rating given at the end of your treatment for your work related injury. Essentially, what is done for this service is a complete Consultation and Examination, as well as review of all your relevant medical documentation.
If you have any permanent physical loss due to your injury, the doctor will provide a percentage of loss of use of the whole body, ( an impairment rating).
Once an impairment number is arrived at by your physician, it is multiplied by $177,000. This means if you have a 10% impairment rating, the insurance company will pay you $17,700.
If you believe you have a permanent injury, call UMED Pain Management at 907-947-7862 for a free consultation.
