each state has it's own comp rules.
MMI = Maximum Medical Improvement and is not a type of doctor

A tie breaker opinion can be used any time there is a difference of opinin between 2 doctors.
The issue could be whether the injury is from work, or over treatment, or the ppd rating. It is considered an Independent Medical Examination. See question #2:
