NAC 616B.7685 Permanent physical impairment: Restrictions on addition or combination of ratings. (NRS 616A.400, 616B.584, 616B.587, 616B.590)
1. For the purposes of subsection 3 of NRS 616B.587, the ratings of permanent impairment of two or more body parts, organ systems or organ functions may not be added together or combined to reach a rating of permanent impairment of 6 percent or more of the whole person to qualify a condition as a permanent physical impairment.
2. The Administrator will use the American Medical Association’s Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment as a reference for determining whether a rating of permanent impairment totals 6 percent or more of the whole person to qualify a condition as a permanent physical impairment pursuant to NRS 616B.587. Multiple body parts unrelated to a subsequent injury will not be considered as one impairment. Each body part, organ system or organ function included within a claim against the Subsequent Injury Account for Private Carriers must satisfy the definition of “permanent physical impairment” to qualify the body part, organ system or organ function for reimbursement under the claim.
