Ombudsman for the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program (EEOMBD)
Posted On: Mar 05, 2013
Part E of the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act created a system of federal payments to compensate certain nuclear workers for occupational illnesses caused by exposure to toxic substances. Signed into law in October 2004, Part E replaced a previous program administered by the Department of Energy (Part D) that provided assistance to nuclear workers in obtaining state workers’ compensation payments.

Part E of EEOICPA grants covered DOE contractor employees and qualified survivors of such employees a federal payment if the employee developed an occupational illness as a result of exposure to toxic substances at a DOE facility. The amount of the payment to the covered employee is based on the level of the employee’s impairment and/or wage loss due to a qualifying occupational illness. Medical benefits are available to qualifying employees under Part E for the treatment of accepted occupational illnesses. Part E also provides monetary and medical benefits to uranium miners, millers, and ore transporters covered by Section 5 of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act. Where applicable, survivors of RECA Section 5 employees are also entitled to monetary payments under Part E.

Part E of EEOICPA also created the Office of the Ombudsman, required to be maintained for a period of three years from enactment of the new legislation. Independent from the program office that administers the EEOICPA, the Ombudsman has four primary responsibilities as designated by Congress:

· to provide information to claimants, potential claimants, and other interested parties on the benefits available under Part E and the requirements and procedures applicable to the provision of those benefits

· to make recommendations to the Secretary of Labor regarding the location of resource centers across the country, which claimants can contact for assistance in the acceptance and development of Part E claims

· to issue an Annual Report to Congress, no later than February 15th of each year, detailing the number and type of complaints, grievances and requests for assistance received by the Office of the Ombudsman that year, and an assessment of the most common difficulties encountered by claimants and potential claimants during that year to make recommendations for improving the administration of Part E of EEOICPA.
