Accurate Impairment Ratings
Our physicians ensure that impairment ratings are done accurately and in a timely manner by using our automated claims processing software.
Impairment Ratings Services Are Available for Your Injured Employees TODAY!
Kura MD’s UR (Utilization Review) received a 100% accuracy rating from the state of California Division of Workers’ Compensation. Generating an impairment rating is the leading bottleneck impeding closing the Workers’ Compensation claim. In many cases a physician is backlogged and the impairment rating is put on the back burner and some physicians simply do not like to or do not want to provide impairment ratings.
Kura MD provides impairment ratings every day as a core part of our Workers’ Compensation services.
Common WC Reporting Errors Solved by Kura MD’s Automated Report Processing Software
|No documentation of ADL which is required in the 5th edition||Tendonitis, fasciitis, or epicondylitis given at impairment (is it an inflammation and is not a permanent loss of function)||Adding, combining or conversions|
|Spine DRE category higher than Category II (except for fusion)||Grip strength or manual muscle testing used with carpel tunnel||Specific tables, figures and page numbers documented within the report|
|Spine ROM method used without explanation||Carpal tunnel syndrome rated with ROM &/or grip strength||More than one method used in the lower extremity|
|A minimum of 3 repetitions not documented for spine ROM||Pain chapter used (check relativity of the IR to total body)||The injured side NOT compared to the non-injured side to render an IR for ROM upper extremity|
|Lumbar ROM fails to address SLR Rule I does not document sacral ROM||Myofascial pain syndrome or fibromyalgia are given an impairment||Nerve compromise rated without identifying the % of deficient for motor/sensory loss|
|No indication if inclinometer or goniometer was used||Subjective complaints without documentation of an objective finding||Failure to document the Activities of Daily Living|
