Pee on-
You can send medical report to the health unit. That will suffice as notification until you are ready to file a claim. Here is a link to info I wish I had when I was being harassed: http://violenceintheworkplace.lettercarrie...ve%20Supervisor.pdf

pee on clerk - There must be a supervisor you can tell. By not telling anyone, they can assume you got hurt somewhere else.

I hurt my groin the other day, (I believe I have a hernia). My postmaster is so creepy and offensive in anything I say to him I dont want to tell him I was injured. Is there anyway to report it without talking to him.

He makes me uncomfortable and he might even ask to touch it. I hope he wouldn't! I wrote email to myself about injury is the only paper trail. Help. I also have a doctor appt. next week but he told me hes going to convention and I need to work so I didn't tell him about doctor and I changed appt. Help

USPS management will try to get you any way they can when you are injured. They will play around with you to try to frustrate you. I just played their game. Pretty soon they will get mad that you showed up for work too. I always clocked in too before I waited on them. They hate idle time on the clock too. I had no instructions on how to clock in for limited duty work so I clocked in normally.

Aniyahc-
I would show up for work every day and wait for a job offer or wait to be sent home. Make sure you fill in the ps 3971 for leave and get your signed copy before you leave.

jjmv and egark-
Being covered by both medicare and FEHB has its advantages especially with the higher copays for everything that came about via Obamacare. I was paying several thousand dollars a year in copays before my medicare kicked in. Now I just pay the Medicare part B premium and I have no copays except for prescriptions.

backrack-
all your accepted work related conditions should be on the SOAF but usually the SECOP or IME examines for the claim related injury. I would make sure your CE, for the current claim in ? is informed of all your work and non work related restrictions. Don't assume they will look at your other cases (they won't).

CluelessNYgranny /m12602 - Medicare covers a max of 80%; you will pay 20% of everything. So, the question is, which is more, that 20% or the difference in the self and family premiums.

On the insurance subject I was going to call my insurance and informed them that my husband will be on Medicare a&in so do I need to inform them because like you said snow it would cover co-pay we read somewhere about gap insurance I am the insurance carrier we are trying to do the right thing economically

Clueless- Your premiums should have changed in January. Call your CE, they may have missed the request for change. Hopefully you did upload or send your change request to OWCP. If your husbands copays are high you might want to reconsider. With My Medicare and bcbs combined I don't pay any copays. It's well worth keeping right now for me.

As for your Health premium reimbursement you will have to get your premium adjusted first. Then send copy of your benefit statements and request for reimbursement to HRM

Hello everyone! Usually I just pop on and read a few pages, but I don’t post, until now. I have a question about my health benefits. This past open season I switched from Family to Self. My hubby now has medicare and it’s cheaper for him to have his own ins. How long does it take for them to stop taking the Family rate out? And the overpayment of premiums? How do I figure that out? Its been a few years since I received a refund. Thank you.
