Our Presentation This Month...
Impairment Ratings: Best Practices to Aid in Achieving Accurate Ratings
CEU AWARDED to Adjusters, RN's and Certified Case Managers
But all are welcome and should join us!
This will be a secure Zoom Meeting
You may not realize just how important this information is, and how your claims may be affected...
In this CEU presentation, we will receive a brief overview of the history of the Guides/Florida Uniform Permanent Impairment Rating Schedule, comparisons of the different versions, and key ideals/principles. We will review national data on the prevalence of erroneous impairment ratings and the potential impact to your claims.
Learn to identify red flags to look for in impairment ratings, your resources available in the field, and what steps to take if you suspect you have received an erroneous rating.
This session is open to everyone, but will also provide a CEU for those who qualify.
