Cost of a Rating Exam in Nevada Is Increased

By Jason Weinstock on March 25, 2010

Effective February 10, 2010, the cost of a permanent partial disability evaluation on a Nevada workers’ compensation claim is $650.99 for one or  two body parts.  An injured worker whodr does not agree with the percentage of impairment found by the assigned rating doctor may obtain a second rating evaluation by paying this same fee for a second rating.   However, if the injured worker does not think an exam is necessary in order for a second rating doctor to conclude that the first rating doctor made an error, he may pay the assigned second doctor $324.85 for a records review and report.  Click here for the  form to request the name of a second rating doctor from the rotating list maintained by the Division of Industrial Relations.  Read my earlier blog post on how to contest PPD awards.
