What is RateFast Express?

RateFast Express is an impairment rating tool used by case managers to assist physicians in preparing impairment rating reports (PR-4 reports).

After sending selected chart documents to RateFast, RateFast Express users will soon receive an impairment rating report for a workplace injury claim.

When is my case ready for RateFast Express?

An injured body part is ready for a RateFast Express impairment rating when the body part has reached Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI). An injured body part is likely MMI in the following example scenarios:

    • Six month post-injury and no further intervention planned for the injured body part.
    • Six month post-surgery on the injured body part and no further recovery expected.
    • Returned to full duty with with no further active care planned for the injured body part.
    • Returned to full duty with no residual signs or symptoms related to the injured body part.

You can easily determine if an injured body part has reached MMI using the RateFast MMI Calculator.
