There are several Occupational Illnesses that may be compensable under Part B of the EEOICPA. In short the following occupational illness may be compensable under Part B of the EEOICPA:
Most cancers start in one place. The place where a cancer starts is called the primary site. The cancer that starts there is the primary tumour. For example, if you have cancer that starts in the breast, you have primary breast cancer.
Cancers can spread to distant parts of the body. Once is spreads and cancer starts to grow in a new place. The place where it now grows is called the secondary site. The cancer is called a secondary tumour or metastasis. If you have been accepted under Part B of the EEOCIPA for breast cancer and it spreads to your lungs, the secondary lung cancer may be compensable under Part B of the EEOICPA as a consequential illness.
The following diseases, onset must have been at least fiver years after initial exposure:
* The pleura and lung are separate organs, so cancer of the pleura, such as mesothelioma, is not a specified cancer.
Specifically, Chronic Silicosis resulting from exposure to silica from covered employment at a DOE facility in Nevada or Alaska, aggregating at least 250 work days during the mining of tunnels for tests or experiments related to atomic weapons.
Only the specific illnesses accepted by the DOJ in your Section 5 RECA award letter.
The effect of an accepted occupational illness under Part B in causing, contributing to or aggravating an injury, illness, impairment, or disease is considered a consequential condition.
