    if you are receiving temporary disability then once you are determined to be at Maximum Medical improvement it will stop until the parties agree on a permanent impairment rating.
    your rating will have to wait until after your doctor supplies the necessary documentation. the carrier/employer may want a second opinion on the impairment factors as well.
