Title: ●Claims for Compensation under the Federal Employees' Compensation Act, as Amended: Compensation for Disability and Death 
Abstract:

The regulations govern how OWCP administers the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act, as amended (FECA), 5 U.S.C. 8101 et seq.  There are four core areas where regulatory change would provide increased economic savings, more efficient processing of claims and payment of benefits, more choices and quicker access to healthcare, and stronger anti-fraud efforts as well as fine tuning to reflect statutory changes and administrative practices.  The four core areas are as follows:  Continuation of Pay (COP), Required Response Times, Authorization for Emergency Care, and Program Integrity.
