ACC, are using an AMA Handbook that was published in 1989 to make whole person impairment assessments under a Legislation from 2002 . Under this Legislation ACC must use a AMA4 4th Edition to assess a persons whole person impairment when in fact AMA made amendments in their AMA6 6th Edition to include PTSD, MDD, Mental Health Disorders, and the Trauma of childhood sexual abuse. The AMA4 4th Edition does not cover the above Disorders. ACC have refused to use the new AMA6 6th Edition which was published in 2007 ACC are standing behind a Legislation Act Injury Prevention Rehabilitation and Compensation ( Lump Sum & Independent Allowance Regulation Act of 2002 ) the reasons for not changing the AMA4 4th Edition to the Amended AMA6 6th Edition is because under the AMA4 4th Edition the highest level of impairment that the medical assessor can go up to is 40% where as under the AMA’s AMA6 6th Edition the table of impairment goes from 0% to 100% under the Sensitive Claims. To also include the use of the AMA5 5th Edition for Sensitive Claims. Both the AMA5 5th Edition as well as the AMA6 6th Edition must be available to the assessors for all ACC’s whole level of impairment.
