Medical Impairment Rating (MIR) Registry
The Medical Impairment Rating (MIR) Registry is a Bureau of Workers’ Compensation-maintained listing of qualified and approved physicians who are specially trained to conduct impairment rating medical evaluations and who have applied to serve on the Registry. The program is designed to assist parties in settling a workers’ compensation claim when the only item being disputed is the impairment rating. The program is available only for dates of injuries on/after July 1, 2005.
