The SC Workers’ Compensation Commission has revised Form 14B, the Physician’s Statement, which is used to obtain an expert medical opinion on various issues including, but not limited to, a determination of maximum medical improvement, impairment ratings assigned pursuant to the AMA Guidelines to Permanent Impairment, appropriate work restrictions, and whether a claimant will be in need of future medical treatment. More importantly, Form 14B is often required to be submitted before a case can be resolved.
Please note that Form 14B has been revised to improve clarity, with regards to several of the above-referenced issues. MGC recommends our clients use the revised Form 14B.
