Nuclear Worker Health Care Benefits
The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act’s primary goal is to protect the interests of family workers who experienced injuries or became sick while on the job. It was first enacted in October 2001 and was created in part to help former employees of the Department of Energy (DOE), as well as its predecessor agencies, get proper compensation.
Part B of the EEOCIPA, which became effective on July 31, 2001, highlights the full scope of coverage that the act provides for former energy workers. These include sicknesses born out of radiation exposure, such as radiogenic cancer, beryllium sensitivity, and chronic silicosis.
The EEOCIPA will also provide health care benefits and monetary compensation for former workers or their eligible survivors who have been awarded benefits by the Department of Justice, as detailed under Section 5 of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act. This includes providing medical services, as well as referrals, to EEOICPA health care providers whenever necessary.
