What qualifies as a Medical Re-Rate?

In order to qualify for a medical re-rate, an "injury" is defined as an acute injury that removes a player from the game for 12+ months or results in a permanent change in ability and condition. "Condition" is defined as a chronic condition that results in a permanent change in ability.
