Understanding EEOICPA and RECA


The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) was enacted by Congress in 2000 to compensate qualified individuals for health impairments they suffered as a result of their employment.


EEOICPA benefits are paid under two parts: Part B and Part E. Meals & Tolar Impairment specialists assist qualified individuals with impairment ratings under Part E of the Act. Learn more about Parts B & E of EEOICPA.


Radiation Exposure Compensation Act, established in 1990, provides additional compensation for a subset of workers. Learn more about RECA and determine if you qualify for these compensation benefits. 

Impairment Assessments

Impairment ratings can be conducted by phone or in person using your most recent medical records. For each 1% of impairment, $2,500 is awarded.  Learn more about impairment ratings.

New Condition Assessments

An impairment evaluation can be performed every two years to determine your percentage of impairment.  New conditions may be rated upon approval of your condition. There is no need to wait two years from your last impairment rating to seek an impairment rating for a newly approved condition.
