    A Dual Purpose Referral refers to those requests for an assessor's opinion regarding BOTH liability AND impairment within the one referral, examination, assessment and report request. Dual Purpose Referrals will only be requested of those assessors who are both an Independent Impairment Assessor and WorkSafe approved Independent Medical Examiner. This loading only applies subject to Agent request at referral.
