When you have been injured on the job, there is already enough to worry about. Recovering from the injury, caring for your family, and making ends meet, for starters. Finding a DOL-OWCP doctor and going through the paperwork and claims can seem like a daunting and scary process, but it doesn’t have to be!
OWCP claims are our sole focus – it is what we specialize in. We know it can be intimidating going down that rabbit hole on Google and searching: “How to file for workers comp with OWCP,” but you’re not alone in this. By selecting a clinic for treatment and care that works with OWCP patients day in and day out, you can feel at ease knowing that your injuries are being properly treated, and that your claim will be submitted quickly and smoothly, giving you access to your full benefits.
At OWCP Doctors in Houston, our mission is to help injured federal employees truly heal and recover from their painful conditions. We use a multi-disciplinary approach to ensure you get the care you need and the care you are owed by the DOL & OWCP. Whether that means traditional medical care, physical therapy, chiropractic, or other disciplines, we aim to treat your conditions and get you the proper care you deserve. Our doctors won’t just write you a prescription for painkillers and send you back home. We are interested in finding out why you are having that pain, where it’s coming from, if it’s linked to prior injuries on the job, how it’s connected to your duties, etc., and then address the root cause.
Our administrative staff are well-versed in the claims process, and will work with you to help the process go as smoothly as possible. At OWCP Doctors Houston, we work with those patients who are members of the American Federation of Government Employees, or the AFGE. This includes employees of:
- Veterans Affairs (VA)

- Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
- Social Security Administration (SSA)
- Department of Defense (DOD)

Help Filing OWCP Claims
On average, more than 150,000 federal employees file for an OWCP claim each year. Unfortunately, many of these claims are either kicked back multiple times or disapproved entirely. Of the more than three billion dollars paid out by OWCP for benefits in a recent fiscal year, nearly one billion of that went to medical benefits, and nearly two billion dollars went to disability benefits. How much of that are you owed for your on-the-job injury?
Our team has helped countless patients get access to their benefits through submitting properly filled-out claims with enough information to get approved and move through the system rapidly.
By working with our team, you will have allies on your side who 1) want to see you fully healed and improved, and 2) help you with the necessary paperwork to get your claim underway and through the approval process. You aren’t alone in this. Workers’ comp doesn’t have to be scary! Call us today to learn more about getting the process started!
