MMI: Defining Full Recovery In Workers’ Comp

 Thursday, November 21, 2019

There is much discussion in the workers’ compensation industry about injured workers reaching MMI.

MMI, of course, for those of you who are new to the industry or who just stumbled across this blog while searching for free porn, is “Maximum Medical Improvement.”

It is the point during an injured persons recovery that they are designated by a physician to be at their maximum point of recovery.

But what does that mean, really, both for the industry and the injured person?

Reaching MMI for many does not mean that a full recovery has occurred, if “full recovery” is defined by the parameters of a person’s physical ability prior to their injury.

And Is "full recovery" always realistic? Can a full recovery be defined and pursued as something less than a person’s former functional ability?
