clark d - If owcp says causal relationship not met, then you need to advise your doctor that his medical report needs to state very specific what duties you were doing which caused your injury and he needs to explain the mechanics of the injury with explicit medical rationale. If the doctor doesn't write a report with medical rationale, owcp denies your claim. You need to do an appeal, and enclose your doctor's new medical report with medical rationale.

Has the po corrected the safety issue at work? Did you write up the safety issue at work by completing the OSHA form? That form would be evidence you could also enclose in your appeal.

Did you have a LWEC on the first injury if not then you should get paid based on your full time rate/hours.

clarkd - While you were only working 4 hours per day before you got re-injured, owcp was supposed to pay you 4 hours per day. Were they paying you for the 4 hours you could not work? If not, then they owe you 4 hours of pay per day as long as you were only working 4 hours per day. If owcp was not paying you for the 4 hours your doctor wouldn't allow you to work due to work injury, then you should go to your congressman and tell them you need help and that owcp has not been paying you.

But, for your new injury, you should only be getting 4 hours of owcp pay for that. But, you should have been and should still be receiving the 4 hours of pay that you weren't able to work from your first injury.

clarkd - I think I answered this question already. In case you didn't see my answer: The 4 hours that you're getting paid for by owcp for your previous injury will stay at the same pay rate. The new injury you received while only working 4 hours/day, you should get paid your current payrate for the 4 hours you are required to miss from work due to your injury.

You will still get paid for 8 hours/day by owcp, but the previous 4 hour payrate stays the same and the new injury for the 4 hours will most likely be a higher payrate. It just depends if you make more money per hour now than you did at your first injury.

Cross Post:
Was wondering if anyone knew what this was: I signed into ACS to check some things and under bills in process they had my last 4 mileage claims (that they have paid already) in the bills in process area again with the reason being "ACS SPECIAL MASS ADJUSTMENT"

Anyone have a clue?

Have you very asked your doctor about Voltaren GeL? They have a Generic for it. That OWCP will pay for.

I was prescribed a compound cream for pain approximately 2 years. Now owcp has denied the pain compound cream. Has anyone been able to get their compound approved. I cannot take opioids for extended periods of time.

If you had that many years in the private sector you might still be better to stay on OWCP. You can always switch even retroactively if OPM gives you the higher $$. Many will switch to OPM and then collect their schedule award if they have one coming.

So we get screwed either way. At least my wife's benefit will go up. Then maybe I should check and see how much my OPM Retirement will be better than OWCP. I am supposed to receive full benefits from Soc. Sec. But I had worked and paid into SS for 35yrs in the private sector job force. Also I paid more into SS in the private sector, than I did prior to going to work for the Fed. Govt., So I will have to see what happens. So I wonder if the amount I paid into SS in the private sector work fore affect my SS also?
Thanks for the reply.
