A Quick Note on Maximum Medical Improvement

Maximum Medical Improvement, or MMI, is a term that doctors use to indicate that an injury or injured person’s ailment has somewhat stabilized. If it is unlikely that your injury will significantly improved over the next 12 months, a doctor can place you at MMI.

The OWCP and AMA Guides 6th edition require that your doctor indicates MMI before you have an impairment evaluation done for the purposes of a schedule award benefit. Read more about Schedule Award benefits here.
