Making me wait for PDI?
#1
I am from California and I have a settled case, 40% disability. I went back and had extra work done on my knee.  After a AME re-evaluation, the insurer has agreed to 45% via a STIP. My original STIP was paid out as a lump sum. Now, the insurer says they will not start my PDI for the remain 5% until such time that would have passed had I not received a lump sum for the first 40%. This means they want me to wait over 9 months before they start making PDI payments? I asked why LC 4650 (PDI within 14 days of discover and every 14 thereafter) does not apply but they have no answer. Am I missing something here?

It is my understanding they do not have to advance you PD payments without an award for PD after 1/1/2013. Since the lump sum covered PD for a certain time period, paying you early would be advancing PD payments. I would check this with an attorney or I&A officer to make sure. I am no expert. Hopefully 1171 will se this.
