Getting injured on the job is an experience most people try to avoid. It can be costly to you and your family if you are unable to work due to an injury. For federal employees, there are specific protocols and requirements that need to be met to ensure you get the benefits you are entitled to.
Filing OWCP (Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs) claims can be complicated, and if they are done incorrectly, it may result in a delay or denial of benefits. While finding a DOL (Department of Labor) approved doctor should be your first step, you may find that getting your care from a clinic that is experienced with working with OWCP forms can be crucial to having your claim go as smoothly as possible.
Often, you are required to fill out and file forms that can be difficult to navigate; you will also have to have proof regarding your injuries and care from your physician. There is room for many mistakes during this process, and even the slightest misstep can result in claim denial. Having a provider who can help you work through the necessary paperwork can prove to be invaluable.
