No-Cost Healthcare for Pinellas Plant Workers
The federal government has a program called EEOICPA that compensates former employees and contractors of the Department of Energy. The program provides compensation to those who were exposed to dangerous chemicals, toxins, and high levels of radiation. The program also covers the Pinellas Plant facility located in Clearwater, FL. Former workers of Pinellas Plant who meet certain criteria can receive health benefits and lump-sum payments through the program.
If you used to work in the energy industry and are eligible for the EEOICPA, United Energy Workers Healthcare can provide you with free in-home healthcare services. Additionally, we can help you with the claims process, paperwork, and offer assistance in understanding the whole procedure.

In order to be eligible for EEOICPA/RECA benefits, an individual must have been employed at a covered Department of Energy facility, an approved atomic weapons facility, or at a permitted beryllium vendor. An individual must also have one of the covered conditions as a result of exposure to radiation, beryllium, or silica while employed at an accepted facility. In addition, uranium miners, millers, and ore transporters are eligible for benefits if they develop an illness as a result of exposure to toxic substances (such as radiation, chemicals, solvents, acids, and metals) and worked at a facility covered under RECA. Eligibility requirements vary by location and condition.
