A few weeks ago I posted about the Multiple Disabilities Table for combining disabilities with injuries prior to 2005.
For injuries after 2005 we must turn to the 2005 Permanent Disability Rating Schedule. When combining disabilities for injuries after 2005 there are several possible alternatives. You can:
- Open up your copy of the AMA Guidelines to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, Fifth Edition to pages 604 through 606.
- Open up your copy of the 2005 Permanent Disability Rating Schedule to pages 8-1 through 8-4.1
- Reverse engineer the combined values formula from the three pages of 4 point font in the Combined Values Chart.2
- OR, my personal favorite, take 30 seconds to sign up for free and use the combined values chart calculator whenever you want!
