Insurance Disputes

What is maximum medical improvement?

When you’ve concluded your treatment of an injury with a doctor, they will declare that you have reached "maximum medical improvement." This means that the patient has reached a point where they are as healthy as they can be; they may not be in the condition that they were prior to the accident, but their health has stabilized.

If that is the case, a doctor may assign the patient a permanent impairment rating according to American Medical Association guidelines.
