5.8.4 Determination of lifestyle rating where interim PI is payable

Where interim PI is payable in respect of a PI claim, the lifestyle rating for the person's whole person impairment is determined using Chapter 22 of GARP M 

Note that for Step 1 there may be situations where no lifestyle rating has been determined.  This would include:

  • a transitional case where the old injury or disease is a SRCA condition; and
  • where the MRCA client converted an interim PI payment to a lump sum prior to the inclusion of a lifestyle factor in interim PI from 1 July 2013.

If the client has completed option 1 (self-rated) or option 3 (questionnaire) these are to be ignored for interim PI lifestyle assessment.
