According to the Federal Employees Compensation Act (FECA), federal workers who have been injured on the job, or while performing work-related duties, are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits including like medical care, continuation of pay (C.O.P.), and other benefits. FECA also gives injured federal employees the right to choose their own treating doctor. This means you can choose a certified DOL doctor who knows how to properly treat an OWCP injury claim. It also means you are not obligated to choose the “company doctor” who may yield to the pressures of your employer. The DOL doctors at Blue Star Rehabilitation have helped thousands of injured letter carriers, mail handlers, and other USPS, TSA, VA, FBI, DOD, etc., employees recover from their injury and receive all the workers’ compensation benefits they deserved.
