The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program (EEOICPA) was enacted by the U.S. Congress to compensate workers who become sick as a result of their involvement with the production of nuclear weapons. EEOICPA is an entitlement program that provides both lump-sum payments and medical benefits to sick energy workers or their survivors. So far, this program has paid out approximately $10 billion in claims.
The EEOICPA is frequently referred to by claimants as a Medical Benefits ID Card, which is issued by the Division of Employee Occupational Illness Compensation’s Division (DEEOIC) bill pay agent. Claimants who are accepted under the EEOICPA for an occupational illness or covered illness are issued a Medical Benefits ID Card.
You need to present your Medical Benefits ID Card at the time of treatment for your accepted condition (s). You can assist your medical provider to determine the appropriate way to bill for their services by presenting your EEOICPA White Card.
Who Is Eligible?
In general, anyone who worked at a recognized Department of Energy (DOE) nuclear facility (employees, contractors, and sub-contractors) and became sick as a result of their exposure to radiation or hazardous chemicals could be eligible for compensation. Additionally, surviving family members can also qualify for lump-sum compensation.
What’s more, there are numerous benefits you might be able to claim that include compensation under the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) or benefits under parts B and/or E of the EEOICPA
All injured workers have the right to be treated with immediate care. If you’ve been injured at work, the last thing you want to do is shop around for a pharmacy that can fill your workers’ comp prescription.
At Hibbitts Drug Co., we are contracted by the Department of Labor to help people file compensation and benefits claims under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act, at no cost to you.
