Can I reopen an OWCP Federal Workers Compensation claim after it’s been closed?

The Office of Workers Compensation Programs (OWCP) may close a particular federal workers compensation claim for a variety of reasons, and sometimes this can seem quite unexpected. Furthermore, once a claim has been closed, it can be very difficult to reopen–but not impossible! One way to reopen an OWCP claim is with the assistance of a doctor who understands the federal workers compensation system. Usually, the necessary first step is for your federal workers comp doctor to write a very particular kind of report to the OWCP office, requesting for your claim to be reopened.

And this is how FedDoctor.com may be able to help you! We are constantly seeking to bring on more and more doctors across the nation who understand the federal workers compensation system.

Go to FedDoctor.com now to read a more in-depth article about reopening an OWCP claim that has been closed, and while you’re there, you can also look for federal workers comp doctors in your area!


New Federal Doctors Coming Soon

With Federal Doctors being so hard to find, we might be tempted to put any doctor we could find on our site. The truth is that while we always want to add practices to our website, making sure that they really understand the federal workers compensation system is imperative. We interview all of our doctors so that you can have peace of mind that they are interested in actually treating injured federal employees.

Read this article about FedDoctor and our process of searching for the best federal doctors in the country. We know that as an injured person (especially one that works for the federal government) it is a stressful time. If your doctor doesn’t specifically work with the OWCP and Department of Labor, they may not understand or be willing to work with your claims examiner and the ACS to ensure that you get the treatment and documentation that your claim will need.

FedDoctor can’t make a doctor take federal claimants on as patients, but we do try to find the ones that want to treat federal workers with their on-the-job injuries. OWCP can be so frustrating, but having the right doctor can make all the difference.

How can a Federal Workers Compensation Doctor help with the OWCP?

The question has been asked in thousands of ways, but most federal employees that have suffered from an on-the-job injury have the same thoughts running through their heads. Finding a doctor that truly understands the federal workers compensation system is very difficult. The Department of Labor, who runs the Office of Workers Compensation Programs, has its own set of rules about workers compensation law.

Doctors across the nation generally do not study FECA (Federal Employees Compensation Act) and don’t understand how it differs from their own state’s law. FedDoctor.com is here to help you find the ones nearest to you that actually want to help federal employees get care that is covered under the OWCP.

Whether it is to get your claim accepted, get treatment, or get evaluated for continuing lost wage compensation or schedule awards, these doctors understand what it means to be a “federal doctor”. Read this article on FedDoctor’s website about how they can help you during your quest to get compensated for your injury at your federal job.

OWCP doctors needed for federal employees’ workers compensation

The Office of Workers Compensation Programs administers workers compensation benefits to all federal employees. It even covers harbors workers, longshoremen and even a lot of government contract employees oversees.

The problem is that when injuries occur on the job, there are very few medical professionals that understand how to help a federal employee with an OWCP claim. Sure they may no how to administer treatment, but helping with the right language and terminology that is required by the Department of Labor is a completely different story.

The federal workers compensation system differs from state law comp. Federal employees need special attention from the care providers to make sure that they have all the necessary documentation for a successful claim. Claims Examiners at the OWCP have the ability to request special report regarding causation, impairment or progress of a patient’s condition. A good federal doctor understands that these are part of the process and how to support the condition in the right way.

While every doctor is capable of treating injured federal employees, not many learn the nuances of the process. The ones that do can be difficult to identify. That is where FedDoctor comes in. We find the best doctors that treat federal employees and make a place that is easy to find them.

Visit today to read about why you need a federal doctors and enter your zip code to find one near you. You can also search by metropolitan area to locate a doctor in a nearby city.

OWCP Schedule Awards

One of the most financially important benefits offered to injured employees with a federal workers compensation claim is a Schedule Award. Schedule Awards are available to any federal employee with an accepted OWCP claim and a permanent impairment due to their on-the-job injury.

The process of getting a Schedule Award can be long and arduous. You must first have an accepted claim, reach maximum medical improvement, find a federal doctor that can rate the impairment under the AMA Guides 6th Edition and then submit the claim with a new CA-7.

Sounds easy, right?

If only it was that simple. FedDoctor has a 4 part series about the ins and outs of impairment ratings and federal doctors and how they play important roles in schedule award process. The right physician that has the proper training and understanding of the OWCP and FECA laws is hard to find.
