Finding the right doctor can make a big difference…

Many federal employees struggle with the OWCP’s repeated requests for additional information to verify the causal relationship of their injury. OWCP continually asks for more medical information, and once the claimant supplies it, they ask for more. Not only is this frustrating to you, it is frustrating to your doctor.

Many physicians did not go to medical school with the idea that one day some government agency would question there opinion about the cause of injury of one of their patients. Most want to treat the injury and send you on your way. But if you are a federal employee that was injured on the job, you need more than that.
