Agencies Assisting with EEOICPA and the Former Worker Program

FWP provides no-cost medical screenings to all former DOE Federal, contractor, and subcontractor employees. The screening focuses on the early detection of health conditions that may be related to occupational exposures such as beryllium, asbestos, radiation, silica, etc.

  • Medical screenings include a physical exam, hearing test,
  • Medical screenings include a physical exam, hearing test, blood and urine tests, and other special tests depending on the individual’s work and exposure history.
  • An occupational medicine physician, independent of DOE, will review the exam results and provide a written results letter.
  • If a potentially work-related illness is identified, the screening exam results letter may be used to support an EEOICPA claim.
