All About OWCP Impairment Rating – Injured Federal Workers

OWCP

Federal workers who have suffered a severe injury are eligible for federal workers’ compensation upon the conformation and review of their claim together with the accompanying medical reports. This usually qualifies you for up to 45 days of compensation, after which you may receive more compensation if it is discovered that your injuries are permanent and that you cannot return to your previous position within the federal government. That being said, there is a lot of complex information regarding the impairment ratings when it comes to your claim which we shall explore in an in-depth manner on this blog post.

An Impairment Rating Evaluation is vital in order to qualify for compensation after the 45 days of prior compensation. This is typically carried out by DOL doctors familiar with the requirements of OWCP when it comes to rating your injuries. They typically use a guidebook that list the compensation amount of each body part. In addition, your disability receives a rating which will be examined by OWCP officials who will then determine how much you will receive as far as compensation is concerned.

It is however important to note that you should have reached a point called Maximum Medical Improvement in order to undergo this evaluation as it is seen as a last resort of sorts and a way to appropriately take care of an injured federal worker who may not be able to return to work any time soon, if at all. The impairment rating is usually billed to OWCP, so you don’t have to worry about paying out of pocket when it comes to this.
