FYI
if it was a hearing then both parties have appeal rights (approx 30 days)
If it was a conference then you should get some action before that.

The judge will come up with rating and award instructions based on medical records and testimony. Both parties have the right to appeal the judge's decision within 30 days. If no Appeal the award becomes final. Any monies due will be dispersed based upon instructions.

OK, now I am confused. Was this hearing to make them pay for the medical care you need, or was it so the judge could come up with a rating?
