Ca 2 Form PDF Details

Navigating the intricacies of workplace injuries and diseases under the Federal Employees' Compensation Act (FECA) can be daunting for both employees and employers alike. The CA-2 Form, officially known as the "Notice of Occupational Disease and Claim for Compensation," serves as a critical tool in this process, managed by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP). This form is meticulously designed to compile comprehensive information regarding the employee's condition, its correlation to their employment, and the claim for compensation and benefits owed under the FECA. It requires detailed input from the employee, including personal information, a descriptive account of the occupational disease or illness, its direct link to the work environment, and an authorization for medical disclosure. On the flip side, employers or supervisors have the responsibility to corroborate these details, supplement the form with additional evidence, and ensure its timely submission to OWCP. This dual participation underscores the form's pivotal role in substantiating claims for medical care, wage loss compensation, and other benefits aimed at assisting federal employees in their recovery and rehabilitation. However, the stakes of misrepresentation either by omission or commission are high, as it may lead to serious legal implications, including felony criminal prosecution. Hence, understanding and accurately completing the CA-2 Form is paramount in navigating the FECA claims process efficiently and ethically.

Disability Benefits for Employees under the Federal Employees' Compensation Act (FECA)

The FECA, which is administered by the Office of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP), provides the following general benefits for employment-related occupational disease or illness:

(1) Full medical care from either Federal medical officers and

hospitals, or private hospitals or physicians of the employee's choice.

(2)Payment of compensation for total or partial wage loss.

(3)Payment of compensation for permanent impairment of certain organs, members, or functions of the body (such as loss or loss of use of an arm or kidney, loss of vision, etc.), or for serious disfigurement of the head, face, or neck.

(4)Vocational rehabilitation and related services where necessary.

The first three days in a non-pay status are waiting days, and no compensation is paid for these days unless the period of disability exceeds 14 calendar days, or the employee has suffered a permanent disability. Compensation for total disability is generally paid at the rate of 2/3 of an employee's salary if there are no dependents, or 3/4 of salary if there are one or more dependents.

An employee may use sick or annual leave rather than LWOP while disabled. The employee may repurchase leave used for approved periods. Form CA-7b, available from the personnel office, should be studied BEFORE a decision is made to use leave.

If an employee is in doubt about compensation benefits, the OWCP District Office servicing the employing agency should be contacted. (Obtain the address from your employing agency.)

For additional information, review the regulations governing the administration of the FECA (Code of Federal Regulations, Title 20, Chapter 1) or Chapter 810 of the Office of Personnel Management's Federal Personnel Manual.

Privacy Act

In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (5 U.S.C. 552a), you are hereby notified that: (1) The Federal Employees' Compensation Act, as amended and extended (5 U.S.C. 8101, et seq.) (FECA) is administered by the Office of Workers' Compensation Programs of the U.S. Department of Labor, which receives and maintains personal information on claimants and their immediate families. (2) Information which the Office has will be used to determine eligibility for and the amount of benefits payable under the FECA, and may be verified through computer matches or other appropriate means. (3) Information may be given to the Federal agency which employed the claimant at the time of injury in order to verify statements made, answer questions concerning the status of the claim, verify billing, and to consider issues relating to retention, rehire, or other relevant matters. (4) Information may also be given to other Federal agencies, other government entities, and to private-sector agencies and/or employers as part of rehabilitative and other return-to-work programs and services.

(5)Information may be disclosed to physicians and other health care providers for use in providing treatment or medical/vocational rehabilitation, making evaluations for the Office, and for other purposes related to the medical management of the claim. (6) Information may be given to Federal, state and local agencies for law enforcement purposes, to obtain information relevant to a decision under the FECA, to determine whether benefits are being paid properly, including whether prohibited dual Payments are being made, and, where appropriate, to pursue salary/administrative offset and debt collection actions required or permitted by the FECA and/or the Debt Collection Act. (7) Disclosure of the claimant's social security number (SSN) or tax identifying number (TIN) on this form is mandatory. The SSN and/or TIN, and other information maintained by the Office, may be used for identification, to support debt collection efforts carried on by the Federal government, and for other purposes required or authorized by law. (8) Failure to disclose all requested information may delay the processing of the claim or the payment of benefits, or may result in an unfavorable decision or reduced level of benefits.

Note: This notice applies to all forms requesting information that you might receive from the Office in connection with the processing and adjudication of the claim you filed under the FECA.

The supervisor should also submit any other information or evidence pertinent to the merits of this claim.

Item Explanation: Some of the items on the form which may require further clarification are explained below.

1a. Email Address

Injured workers should provide an email address when completing this form. Pursuant to policy established by the Department of Labor, Office of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP), Division of Federal Employees' Compensation, email communication on case specific inquiries is not allowed due to security concerns. However, obtaining claimant email addresses at the point of filing will allow OWCP to share general, non-case specific information with injured workers earlier in the claims submission process. As a longstanding policy and in an effort to protect the identities and personal information of claimants under the Federal Employees' Compensation Act, and to allow better tracking of incoming communications, we do not use two-way email as a primary method of interaction with claimants and their representatives.

23.Name and address of physician first providing medical care

The name and address of the physician who first provided medical care for this injury. If initial care was given by a nurse or other health professional (not a physician) in the employing agency's health unit or clinic, indicate this on a separate sheet of paper.
