OWCP Federal Injured Workers Don’t Have to See a Company Doctor

We had a new federal OWCP work injury patient who called us a couple of weeks ago because he was hurt while working as a letter carrier for the post office.  After he made his appointment to see the doctor, he called back and told us that he was told that he had to go see his company doctor first.  What company doctor?  He was surprised to learn that the post office doesn’t have a company doctor.  The Federal Employee Compensation Act (FECA) allows for any injured federal employee to go to any medical doctor for their OWCP work injury.  Fortunately for this man, he was able to come see a WOLMED doctor that is specially trained to help injured federal employees from the United States Postal Service.
