Stay tuned to our blogs as we are actively pursuing doctors in a number of new regions across the country. Remember that federal doctors can be extremely difficult to find.

Most doctors do not have an interest in helping federal employees with their workers compensation injuries and paperwork. We are always trying to encourage doctors to become more familiar with the OWCP and the Department of Labor processes to be more helpful to federal employees.

The doctors on our website are adept at treating federal employees with their work related injuries. They have experience working with you to help you get the treatment you deserve from your OWCP claim. They are familiar with the AMA Guidelines 6th edition and how to process schedule award impairment ratings specifically for the OWCP.

Remember that you can help us and your fellow federal employees and OWCP claimants by telling us if you know of a doctor who works on OWCP injuries. Some federal employees never find a good federal doctor and are often left out in the cold when it comes to treatment, benefits and returning to health.

Help yourself and start getting what you are entitled to. Don’t let the OWCP intimidate you. You need a doctor who understands the process and can give you an honest evaluation and a fair shake. Also, be sure to tell your friends and unions about

Why should you tell your friends about FedDoctor?

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011 does not charge federal employees for any reason! We are here simply to help federal employees find doctors who truly understand the federal workers compensation process.

Federal doctors who understand the OWCP system and truly care about their patients’ conditions and paperwork are extremely difficult to find. That’s part of the reason that FedDoctor has taken off! Once federal employees who have been injured on the job catch wind of the fact that there is a place to find quality physicians who understand the OWCP, they can’t get to our site fast enough!

This is your chance to help your co-workers. If they can get in to see a quality doctor who can help them with their paperwork, they are more likely to get back to full health and return to work. If they have suffered a severe injury and will not be able to return to work, they need help getting started on their retirement claims. A federal doctor can help them get the medical treatment and documentation to help them through the process.

Tell your friends and union members. Like our Facebook page and Follow our Twitter feed and blog posts. We are constantly writing material that we think may come in useful to you or someone that you care about. Remember, no one wants to get hurt at work. At least now, you have a place to go to find help.

Now you can browse by city

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

We have recently added a feature to the home page of that allows visitors to browse through the available physician lists by searching in a metropolitan area.

Keep in mind that is always working to find more federal doctors who focus a part of their practice on federal workers compensation treatment. While we currently have doctors covering areas in over twenty states, we want to add more to our network! Keep checking back with us as we are providing useful information and updates on new OWCP doctors.

The OWCP Causation Process

Friday, October 7th, 2011

One reason that federal employees have difficulty getting their OWCP claims accepted is that their medical provider is not familiar with how to word a federal workers compensation medical narrative or causation report. That is not to say that their doctor doesn’t understand a medical condition or the treatment options, but simply that the majority of physicians and caretakers are not familiar with the federal workers compensation system and the special requirements that are necessary to satisfy the OWCP.

Whenever a federal employee is injured on the job, it is extremely important that they seek medical attention for their injuries and make sure that their doctor documents the cause of the injury. The Office of Workers Compensation Programs generally disputes cause of injury more than the injury’s existence. Many doctors are not concerned with cause, they are simply interested in treating the condition and returning the patient to a pre-injury state if possible. In a federal workers compensation claim, cause may be the most important factor in determining the acceptance of the claim.

The OWCP will not approve any treatment or compensation payments for lost time if the medical condition claimed is not accepted under the file. Finding a doctor who is familiar with the federal workers compensation system can be very difficult. We are trying to compile the most complete list of doctors who both understand and pursue federal employees. Use your zip code and search for a local doctor to help you get on your way to recovery.

Adding Doctors’ office numbers

Friday, October 7th, 2011

One way that we help the physicians on our site is assistance with the patient inquiry process. Remember that we do not offer any treatment ourselves, we simply help you find the best federal doctors available. Our telephone number can be used to ask questions and talk about particular care providers who might be a good fit for you.

You may notice that we are adding the direct office numbers to many of the member doctors listed on the site. Our goal is that you get in touch with the right federal doctors, the ones who really know the OWCP and how the federal workers compensation offices process claims. That is why we are now including the direct line to the doctors’ offices on their listings.

Be sure to tell them that you found out about them here at We want everyone to know that we are trying to help federal employees and OWCP doctors make the connection that can mean the difference in an accepted and denied OWCP claim. Benefits from the federal workers compensation district offices can be fickle at best and downright difficult in many cases. If you have experience dealing with an on-the-job injury claim, you probably understand how important a competent doctor is when it comes to interacting with the OWCP.

Take the time to look around. This site is designed to help you, the federal employee, find the doctor that can make your federal workers compensation claim work.
