For an injured federal employee, it is vital to understand the importance of going to see a federal workers compensation doctor. The federal workers comp process is confusing, and not all doctors understand the system or even take DOL or OWCP cases. If your normal doctor does not understand how to help you file for your OWCP claim, you might not receive all of the benefits that you are entitled to. Even worse, your claim might be denied altogether if it is filed incorrectly or poorly.
At FedDoctor.com, our doctors focus a portion of their practice entirely on seeing injured federal employees and helping them with their claims and paperwork. Our OWCP doctors can help you fairly and justifiably attain the benefits that you deserve, and if they find out that you have some kind of functional impairment, most of our doctors can even help you file for and receive a schedule award under the AMA 6th Edition system.
So where does your union fit into this? Your co-workers and fellow union members look to your union for support and information. When people get injured, they will ask around, seeking information on what to do next. And that’s why we want your union to be familiar with FedDoctor.com. It’s completely free to use the website to find an OWCP doctor, and if your union is directing people to go to FedDoctor.com, your inured fellow co-workers will be that much closer to getting their benefits.
So talk to your union today about FedDoctor.com, so that they can help spread the word. We want all federal employees to know how to find an OWCP doctor when needed.
