The best medical care is vital for federal employees who are receiving workers’ compensation to ensure complete and quick recovery. Under the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA), more than three million postal workers and other federal employees who have been injured on the job receive workers’ compensation benefits.
The right doctor is a huge part of the recovery process for work-related injuries. A workers’ compensation doctor can be the difference between a quick, effective recovery and a world of confusion and pain.
