BG-
If you have a referral from your treating doctor then you do not need OWCP approval to see him/her.

BG - When my attending physician sent me to another doctor for services, OWCP paid for the visit. But, because the doctor didn't accept owcp, I paid for the visit, then sent a owcp-915 form to owcp and owcp paid me back.

Mr. Retire-
Yes you have the option if you still qualify for OWCP wage loss to make a personal election to remain on OWCP rolls. There is no age limit, although OWCP will offset for SS received on regular annuity based on federal service. This usually happens when you are full retirement age.

I just got results from a new MRI, and I now have an increase in the number of levels in my cervical spine that requires attention. They weren't there before I went back there work in 2016. Should I file additional paperwork or just have dr notate it in narrative. Dr hasn't said anything about reduction in work hrs (2hrs a day), but I can only assume he will.

mailladypostlady-
You can always reapply later if your situation changes. Your approval should be quicker if you already qualify.

I have an approved claim. OJI is from 2006. I was out on OWCP since 2010. Meanwhile, I applied for SSDI. I kept appealing during this time. In mid 2016, EA requested that a return to work 2hrs a day. (My restrictions are very limited and MJO is within those boundaries). My problem is, SSDI ALJ has informed me
that I meet the physical requirements to receive my benefits. The problem is, working 2hrs a day 5 days a week at my pay rate disqualifies me from receiving them. I would like to know if any other USPS employees have had this issue? If so, how did you remedy it? No, I did not have an attorney of my own or representative. The ALJ was really
 nice. He told me he would give me 30 days to look into IRWE (impairment related work expenses). My delima with that is receipts. Any info or directives would be greatly appreciated.

in rare cases a CA-2a is needed but I wont explain that because it will probably just confuse you. If my last post does not apply to you, let me know.
