Where do you start when it comes to federal workers’ compensation benefits? If you are a federal employee and have been injured on the job, you know how stressful it can be trying to focus on recovering. Adding the stress of trying to figure out how to file for your worker’s compensation benefits, or which doctor to see can delay your recovery.
FECA laws were put into effect over 100 yrs ago in order to protect federal workers and their families from financial hardship due to injury or illness on the job. It is difficult to do extensive research into all of the laws that exist to ensure you get the full benefits you’re entitled to on your own.
This is why we offer free claim assistance. Our consultants have a thorough understanding of OWCP (Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs) requirements. This knowledge and experience will maximize your chances of claim approval by making sure it is properly prepared and filed.
Finding a clinic that not only provides the most cutting-edge treatments, but also assists with workers’ compensation benefits claims is uniquely rare. Are you aware that under the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA), you have the right to see your doctor of choice?
When you choose our clinic, you can properly focus on your recovery with confidence that you are being taken care of medically while your claim is being handled with just as much care and attention to detail.
As a federal employee, if you have suffered a work-related injury or illness, your state workers compensation. Instead, you are covered by the FECA as a federal employee. These benefits are available to all union members of the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) as well as civilian federal workers.
These agencies include:
- United States Postal Service (USPS)
- Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
- Social Security Administration (SSA)
- Department of Defense (DOD)
- Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
- Transportation Security Administration (TSA)
- Veterans Affairs (VA)
- Homeland Security (DHS)
- Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP)
- Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP)
As a federal employee, FECA benefits cover all of your medical costs including medications, therapies, and even transportation for treatment. Are you concerned about disability and the benefits your entitled to?
Through basic disability, ¾ of your wages prior to your disability are covered if you have dependents and 2/3 are covered if you do not. These benefits stay in effect as long as your disability lasts, even if you are never able to return to work. Should you succumb to your work-related injury or illness, FECA will provide your survivors with a cash benefit.
As an OWCP- authorized clinic, we keep up to date with all the requirements for FECA claims. When a claim is submitted with errors, you will be required to pay out of pocket for expenses through the delayed process.
Don’t risk delays in receiving the benefits you’re entitled to by submitting a claim improperly on your own. We can help your claim get filed and approved quickly and efficiently so all you have to worry about is getting back on your feet again.
