>Impairment Rating Evaluation- Pennsylvania Workers Comp

>What is an impairment rating evaluation, otherwise known as an IRE? It is an examination that the insurance company sets up in your PA Workmans Comp case, after you receive 2 years of checks for total disability, in which a doctor examines you and determines whether your total body impairment as it relates to your accepted work injuries, is at 50% or above. If so, you can receive checks indefinitely. If it’s below 50%, then you are converted from total disability to partial and can only receive a maximum of 9.5 years worth of wage loss checks. It does not change the amount of the checks, but it puts a ceiling on how long you can receive them- limiting the exposure of the insurance company. In the vast majority of cases, the impairment rating is well below 50%.
