You may receive medical expense reimbursement for your out-of-pocket expenses related to your accepted condition(s) that were incurred prior to the acceptance of your claim under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA). Reimbursement of expenses is allowed retroactive to the filing date of your claim.
To be considered for payment, bills must be submitted by the end of the calendar year after the year when the expense was incurred, or by the end of the calendar year after the year when the claim was first accepted as compensable by the Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC).
As an Example: Your claim is accepted on January 2, 2016. The filing date of your claim is January 1,2015.
Reasonable and customary medical treatment and prescription bills that were incurred between January 1, 2015 and January 1, 2016 for the accepted condition(s) are reimbursable. Your request for medical expense reimbursement must be submitted no later than December 31, 2017 on Form OWCP-915.

Receipts may be attached in lieu of listing each item. Mark the item “see attached.” A separate form must be completed for different medical providers.
