Nuclear Workers Institute of America is a group of experienced advocates, authorized representatives and medical professionals representing former and current workers in filing a claim under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA). We bring together dedicated professionals to help you file a claim from start to finish at no cost to you. 

We are here to help you navigate all aspects of the approval process!

Assistance filing an EEOICPA claim

Filing an EEOICPA claim can be an overwhelming and frustrating process. NWIA serves to build a thorough claim for you or a loved one, including:

  • Collecting and organizing a worker’s medical records and medical history
  • Using the “Site Exposure Matrix” and other resources to determine a worker’s toxic chemical exposure
  • Linking medical records with exposure information to construct a strong claim
  • And much more…

Applied before and were denied?

Applying for EEOICPA/RECA benefits can be a confusing process. Many applicants have been denied in the past due to incomplete paperwork or missing medical records. NWIA specializes in reviewing previously denied claims and assisting in reapplying to the program.

“During a very hard time for our family, NWIA went above and beyond to help us get emergency approval. I’m not sure what we would have done without them.” -Mckinney Family 

Help finding medical resources

NWIA provides help finding doctors, medical equipment, home health or other providers who will accept energy employee benefits. If no providers are currently enrolled in the energy program in your area, we can help the provider of your choice register with the Department of Labor to provide services under EEOICPA.

The institute is also currently working on a national database of EEOICPA medical providers to help beneficiaries find services faster.

Expanding Medical Benefits Coverage

As time progresses, approved workers may develop additional illnesses covered under EEOICPA. The Department of Labor requires a new claim to be filed in order for additional compensation and medical benefits.

Many workers don’t realize they can expand their medical coverage under EEOICPA. This includes complications that may arise from treatments such as chemo or radiation therapy. NWIA can help you identify additional medical issues that may be covered under the Energy Employees Compensation Program.
