Effective April 1, 2018, insurance carriers must begin using the following revised plain language notices:
• PLN-3a (Notice of Maximum Medical Improvement and No Permanent Impairment)
• PLN-3b Notice of Maximum Medical Improvement and Permanent Impairment)
• PLN-3c (Notice of Maximum Medical Improvement and Estimated Permanent Impairment)  
The Division also amended the PLN-3b to allow the carrier to indicate that it disagrees with the doctor’s impairment rating, the carrier’s reasonable IR assessment, and that the payment is based on the carrier’s reasonable assessment.
