First time posting here. I hope I can get some help.

I have been fighting battle after battle for over a year on my injury. I finally had surgery, went through therapy, and reached MMI a few months ago as reported by my surgeon and primary physician(PA) on dwc-073.

I just received the Pln-3 with a copy of the dwc-069, and it states that i do not have a permanent impairment so I am not eligible for IB's.

The problem is, I was never examined or evaluated for an impairment rating.

My primary question is, can I be assigned a "no impairment" without being examined by a physician using AMA guidelines?

My question was answered and the issue is being addressed.
