Look at your rating decision. It will tell you if you have any future exams. Many conditions which can improve are given future exams. They used to be at 2-3 year periods, but with the new rules that came out last year, they are generally scheduled for 5 years out. This was done mainly to reduce our workload so we could focus on new claims.
