Evaluation of California’s Permanent Disability Rating Schedule
College on Forensic Sciences, education in forensic sciences for forensic examiners. Impairment rating systems, Independent medical examinations, Fraud and abuse investigation, Functional (work) capacity and physical assessment (Federal) systems, Return to work and fitness for duty (DOT) assessment
In this study, we focus on the system for evaluating permanent disabilities in California, the permanent disability rating schedule. The rating schedule, which is used to determine eligibility for PPD benefits as well as the amount of benefits, is at the center of legislative debates to reduce the costs of the workers’ compensation system. We address several questions: Does the system ensure that the highest compensation goes to the most severely disabled individuals? Do injured workers with impairments to different parts of the body but similar employment outcomes receive similar compensation? Will different physicians evaluating the same injury produce similar ratings? And finally, how can the rating system be changed to improve outcomes for injured workers and employers in California? - download article
