Know Your Rights
You have the right to receive quality medical care. You have the right to go to the doctor of your choice. You have the right to have your medical diagnosis and treatment covered under the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act. You may also have the right to FECA benefits outside the scope of your medical care. You have the right to a frustration-free FECA claims process.
“The Federal Employees’ Compensation Act provides federal employees injured in the performance of duty with workers’ compensation benefits, which include wage-loss benefits for total or partial disability, monetary benefits for permanent loss of use of a schedule member, medical benefits, and vocational rehabilitation. This Act also provides survivor benefits to eligible dependents if the injury causes the employee’s death. FECA is administered by the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP).” – United States Department of Labor
Unfortunately, failure to follow claims rules or submit the required medical evidence at each step in the claims process can result in a lapse in your FECA benefits – or even the complete denial of benefits. Don’t lose your benefits over a complicated process or a minor paperwork oversight.
