Comprehensive Care For Your Work Injury
OWCP Claims Assistance
Well over a century ago, in 1916, the Federal Employees Compensation Act (FECA) was established to provide federal employees with injury benefits if they have suffered an illness or injury due to their work duties. The Office of Workers' Comp Programs (OWCP) has its roots in this act, and today, it continues to provide federal workers with the necessary support and benefits.
However, navigating the OWCP system can be complicated and challenging. If you've been injured on the job, FECA ensures you don't have to pay out of pocket or use your sick leave. Still, only some doctors accept federal workers' compensation cases due to the system's complexity, the amount of paperwork, and the time it takes to process claims. Elevated Health NYC is different.
At Elevated Health NYC, we understand the unique challenges federal employees face regarding work-related injuries. Our skilled team, including Dr. Persaud, Dr. Shockey, and Dr. Bargiel, are well-versed in the details of FECA and the OWCP system and provide free claims assistance to injured federal employees. We know how to navigate the process and advocate for our patients, ensuring they receive the benefits they are entitled to.
When you choose our team, you can trust that we will work tirelessly to get your OWCP work injury claim accepted and help you recover all the time and money you've lost. At Elevated Health NYC, we are committed to getting you the support and benefits you deserve.
Frequently Asked Questions
Don't I have to see a company doctor for my work injury?
No. As a federal employee protected under FECA, you have the right to choose your own doctor for treatment and care. However, not all doctors accept federal workers' compensation cases due to the complexity of the system, which can lead to challenges and expenses for injured employees.
At Elevated Health NYC, we proudly offer our services and deep understanding of FECA and the OWCP system to federal workers. We can guide you through the process and provide comprehensive care for your work injury.
Does Elevated Health NYC take patients from outside of New York?
Yes! We know how difficult it can be to find a doctor who understands and accepts federal workers' compensation cases, which is why we are proud to accept patients from all over the country. No matter where you live, if you are a federal employee who has been injured on the job, we can help.
How long do I have to file an OWCP work injury claim?
FECA has a time limit for filing claims, which is typically within three years of the date of injury or the date you first became aware of your illness or injury. However, each case is unique, and there may be exceptions to this time limit. If you have questions about filing a claim or the time limit that applies to your situation, our team at Elevated Health NYC can provide guidance and assistance. Contact us for more information.
