Home healthcare services and providers are welcome visitors for many people suffering from an occupational disease. Those employees, civilians, and others who were exposed to radiation or dangerous chemicals while working for the DOE and who qualify for benefits under the two congressional actsThe Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act and/or The Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) may appreciate the companionship of a nurse or caregiver right there in their home. What’s more is that these beneficiaries can receive free EEOICPA and RECA home healthcare, with the frequency of home visits depending on the severity of the condition. In short, our home healthcare professionals will be available to you as often as their services are needed.
Home Healthcare Benefits Under EEOICPA and RECA
Those who are eligible to receive benefits under the EEOICPA and/or RECA programs are those who (generally speaking) have been exposed to radiation from nuclear power plants due to their employment or residence and who developed certain illnesses or conditions related to that radiation exposure. Under the EEOICPA and RECA programs, these benefits may include doctors’ visits, inpatient and/or outpatient hospitalization, and other medical costs.
For many EEOICPA and RECA benefit recipients, their benefits also include the costs of home health care provided by nurses or other medical caregivers. Whether these services are required 24 hours a day or only once per week obtaining these services from providers registered with the EEOICPA/RECA programs means that beneficiaries are not required to pay any copay, deductible, or other out-of-pocket expense for these services. United Energy Workers Health offers nurse and doctor home visits as frequently as is necessary.
What if My Home Health Provider is Coming Too Often (or Not Often Enough)?
You are always able to request more frequent visits from our healthcare professionals if you feel you would like to receive more consistent care. You may also request that our nurses and doctors visit you less if you don’t need their services as regularly. You have control over the frequency of your visits, and all of them are provided to you free of charge as long as you qualify for EEOICPA and/or RECA benefits.
