A: Thanks for your question. I have some difficulty understanding precisely what you are asking. So with that having been said I will answer as best I can. It looks as if neither doctor said you are at MMI? If that is correct then you will stay on TIBs until you reach MMI as certified by qualified medical provider that does not give you a prospective (future) MMI date.

If you're certified at MMI by a DD the DWC "pretends" they are not an interested party so they usually accept the DD's report, unless you can prove a significant error by the DD. Good luck to you.
