Federal Workers Compensation

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

When federal employees are injured on the job, the Office of Workers Compensation Programs is responsible for helping them with medical expenses and compensation. The OWCP has a number of different district offices that adjudicate claims. Cities like Chicago, IL, Jacksonville, FL, and San Francisco, CA are all homes to OWCP District offices.

Whenever a CA-1, CA-2 or CA-2a is filed at a government agency, the claim is forwarded to the appropriate district office. There, it is assigned to a Claims Examiner for review. The Claims Examiner will determine whether the claim has merit based on the medical evidence in the file. This is why finding a doctor that understands the federal workers compensation system is so important.

Federal workers comp is very different from state law comp. As such, most medical providers do not know how to distinguish between the sets of rules that they must follow and the burdens that they have between the two. That is why works so hard to establish an easy way for injured federal employees to find quality medical care from a federal doctor for their OWCP claim.
