I am at MMI – Maximum Medical Improvement…what does that mean?
What is Maximum Medical Improvement?
MMI doesn’t mean that you’re pain free, it doesn’t mean that you’re fixed, and it doesn’t even mean that you don’t need further continuing medical care. All MMI means is that the insurance company doctor can’t think of another medical treatment that is likely to cure you.
Can I fight the company doctor’s opinion?
In our experience, 70% to 80% of our clients get a second opinion and get either more medical care, more impairment, or both.
You have the ability to challenge the company doctor’s opinion that nothing more can be done for you to get you better, but without proper guidance advice it’s impossible to get the care you deserve and need. The insurance company will prey on your lack of understanding and stop you from getting the care and the benefits you deserve.
