    Default Re: How Much Time in Calif

    There is no time limit on a claim, nor are you guaranteed of a cash settlement. You are entitled to PPD indemnity benefits associated with the PD/WPI rating.

    In a Stipulation w/Award you would receive life time medical, but all treatment is subject to UR process, just like in an open claim.
    You cannot pre determine what or how much medical you are to receive.
