For federal employees who are receiving worker’s compensation, you will need the best healthcare to ensure a full and speedy recovery. More than three million postal workers and federal employees who have been injured on the job receive worker’s compensation benefits from the Federal Employees Compensation Act (FECA).
If you are receiving worker’s compensation, finding a worker’s compensation doctor for treatment is a vital part of the recovery process. Federal worker’s compensation doctors are taught to know how to best deal with every aspect of your case and can provide the best treatment possible.
Why Do You Need A Federal Worker’s Compensation / DOL Doctor?
Since federal worker’s compensation doctors are taught to deal specifically with worker’s compensation cases, they can handle any paperwork or administrative aspects of your case. You can take comfort in knowing that your paperwork will be handled correctly at our clinic, and you can be assured that the Department of Labor will recognize your injury.
While you may think any doctor can provide you with medical care, worker’s compensation doctors can provide you with more. Here are some of the benefits provided to you by a worker’s compensation doctor:
A worker’s compensation doctor will put you first. As federal employees, we can help protect your rights during an injury whether you work for the Postal Service, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), or any of the many other federal agencies. Our doctors are trained to treat you for a wide range of injuries, understanding that your job may have physically demanding responsibilities to get back to.
The knowledge that federal worker’s compensation doctors have of the Department of Labor (DOL) and Office of Worker’s Compensation Programs (OWCP) practices makes them a safer choice than regular doctors. Filing these claims quickly and accurately is much easier when you have the experience of our doctors on your side, which will allow you to focus on your health and recovery. Our clinic has the capacity to serve federal employees in a variety of employment areas, including:
- Construction workers
- Postal workers
- Emergency workers
- Prison and jail workers
- Registered nurses
- TSA employees
- Clerks and office workers
- Compliance officers
- Forest service employees
Federal worker’s compensation doctors will help you stay ahead of the process rather than get behind on your treatment and in life. Our clinic is focused on both your health and your rights, following the regulations that FECA stipulates. Through our experience, we’re accustomed to providing you with the healthcare you need and deserve in order to recover from your work-related injury.
Dealing With DOL-OWCP Claims
Incorrect filing of paperwork can be devastating to your worker’s compensation benefits and your life post-injury. We know how overwhelming the process of experiencing a work-related injury can be; but, with the right guidance, you can ensure that your federal worker’s compensation claim is filed correctly. This, in turn, can help you get on the road to recovery. With experience in filing these claims, our clinic will ensure that nothing is left out of your claim and that it is filed correctly. The treatment you deserve is dependent on it. Worker’s compensation doctors can provide you with many advantages when filing worker’s compensation claims, such as:
The necessary experience to provide optimal treatment for your injury is vital to recovery. Our doctors and staff have that necessary experience, and they will help you along every step of the recovery process from filing paperwork without errors to providing the correct treatment so that you can avoid re-injury in the future.
Communication is a vital part of every step of the treatment and recovery process. Our doctors and staff know this well, and we’ll take the time to listen to you and determine the best plan of action. While we want you to recover quickly, we don’t want to rush your treatment or your document preparation. Through good communication, we’ll ensure that the process goes according to plan while listening to any questions you have and answering them to the best of our ability.
We’d all like to believe that doctors uphold a strict moral and ethical code, but unfortunately, this is not always the case. Seeking treatment from worker’s compensation doctors who hold themselves to high ethical and moral standards in taking care of their patients is imperative to your treatment process. Our clinic’s doctors and staff make sure not to cut any corners in your treatment or while filing paperwork, taking each necessary step to help you recover.
While we focus a great deal on the proper filing of your worker’s compensation claims, we’re aware that the proper knowledge is just as important for your case. Our doctors and staff have both the knowledge and experience to confidently work with federal agencies, all while staying up-to-date with any changes in industry guidelines and providing you with the correct information.
