If TT (dietas) preceded the PP award, start prorating the LS from the first day that
the TT ended. If there are multiple periods of dietas, then the LS should be prorated.
If there is no interruption on dietas, the LS should be prorated based on the alta
corresponding to the end of the dietas period.
EXAMPLE: Alta is 03/08/2008. Dietas is paid through 03/08/2008. PP is awarded on the 03/08/2008
alta. Later, dietas payment resumes as of 03/10/2008. The PP should be prorated from
03/09/2008 and would overlap the continuing dietas.
If TT (dietas) did not precede the PP award, we would prorate the PP from the award date, which is usually
NOTE: When coding ICF and TT and PP payments are involved, enter two claims numbers into
the WCCL claim number. Show the correct first claim number for Dietas and code the
second claim as the original plus a suffix such as PP or LS. For more coding examples,

Compensation Resource Page.
