Department of Labor Workers’ Compensation
Texas Medical Institute specializes in the care and treatment of injured federal employees covered by the Office of Workers’ Compensation (OWCP) through the Department of Labor (DOL) and governed by the Federal Employees Compensation Act (FECA).
Clearly Explaining Causation in a DOL Injury Claim
Our Fort Worth doctors with DOL / OWCP experience are experts in explaining causation through detailed medical narratives that clearly link the injury to the federal job. This linking of causation is the critical factor in getting your OWCP workers’ comp case accepted by the DOL. We will perform a thorough medical history review and physical, as well as review your CA-1 or CA-2, perform examinations to identify your current capacity to work, and then submit your medical history and physical information to the DOL, which will make the determination to accept your work injury case.
Immediately Start Treatment
When physical rehabilitation is needed, our Fort Worth medical staff will immediately order therapy to get you on the road to a full recovery. We will start therapy even before your OWCP work injury case has been officially accepted.
Help With Your DOL Workers’ Comp Forms
Our providers in Fort Worth know exactly how to help you with the forms you need to make sure you continue getting paid when you are injured on the job. We can help you with your CA-17 duty status reports and provide you with detailed OWCP 5C forms to detail exactly what you can and cannot do at work. We can help you with your travel reimbursement forms as well as any medical reimbursement forms.
Schedule Award Impairment Ratings
Our Fort Worth medical staff can also help you with your schedule award impairment rating. We use the 6th edition of the AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment to evaluate injured patients for their scheduled awards. While not all injuries are able to be rated, we will be sure your qualified injury will be rated when the time comes.
