Posted on: 7/16/2021

Join our July 20 webinar to learn more!

Effective July 1, 2021, Illinois physicians who perform permanent partial impairment (PPI) ratings in workers’ compensation cases are required by Illinois law to use the newly released AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, 6th Edition. 

The Illinois Workers' Compensation Act requires physicians who author PPI reports to use the most current edition of the Guides to determine the level of impairment. 

As the AMA’s guides are now only available online, physicians will need training on the new digital version. Join ISMS’ webinar to learn more!
