    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%.
