The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) and the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA), qualified individuals may be eligible for free home healthcare benefits at no cost to them. These benefits guarantee payment of medical costs such as:
- Consultations and doctors’ visits;
- Reasonable medical care and travel costs associated with receiving such care;
- Inpatient and/or outpatient hospital costs;
- Laboratory testing;
- Other similar medical and home healthcare costs.
Because a person’s health and healthcare is such a personal and intimate facet of the person’s life, it is not uncommon for individuals to develop close and trusting relationships with certain caregivers, nurses, or doctors who work with United Energy Workers Health. The good news for recipients of EEOICPA and/or RECA benefits is that you will are able to choose and request the individuals who provide you with care in your home.
Choosing and Changing Your Own Provider for Home Healthcare
United Energy Workers Health assists Department of Energy (DOE) employees and others who were exposed to radiation around nuclear power plants and who thereafter developed certain radiation-related illnesses obtain home healthcare benefits under the EEOICPA and/or RECA program. Unlike other programs (such as a state’s workers’ compensation program) that require beneficiaries to receive treatment only from certain medical providers, recipients of EEOICPA and/or RECA benefits are able to choose their own licensed medical care providers to provide home healthcare services. This means you are able to receive care in your home at the hands of professionals with whom you have already built a relationship and whom you already trust.
What is more, there is no restriction that would prevent an EEOICPA or RECA beneficiary from changing providers at any time. Thus, if the quality of care you receive from your present home healthcare provider deteriorates and reaches an unacceptable level, you are free to seek out services and care from a new provider of your choice.
