Covid-19 and federal employees workers compensation

There was an article in the Washington Post yesterday with some statistics about how many federal employees have filed workers compensation claims through OWCP for Covid-19 illnesses and the disposition of those claims.



If your job has you in contact with other people and you have contracted Covid-19, here is a link to OWCP's instructions with regard to filing your claim:



An exposure claim like this MUST be filed within three years of when you knew or should have known that you were exposed. Because there are a lot of unknowns with regard to long term effects of becoming ill with Covid-19, its important to timely file your claim in case you have lingering effects and later need more treatments due to this illness.

I have seen three DMA memos in hearing loss cases by this physician and in EVERY case he invented a reason to reduce the claimant's hearing loss or simply say that the hearing loss is not work related
