The Illinois Workers' Compensation Act states that physicians preparing a permanent partial disability impairment report shall use “the most current edition” of the AMA’s guides in determining the level of impairment. The American Medical Association (AMA) supports the use of the most current medicine to perform fair and consistent permanent impairment evaluations and recently published the latest edition of its AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, 6th Edition. This edition is considered the most current version as of July 1, 2021.
