    Service for Wounded Warriors, Families & Caregivers

    HRO Claims Process for Federal Civilian Employees Serviced by HRO Pax River

    Employees who are injured on the job must immediately report every job-related injury or illness to their supervisor. Download the Supervisor's checklist and the Injured Employee checklist to assist you with your report.

    Employees should report to the Occupational Medicine Clinic, Bldg 436. Employees do not have to be treated at the Clinic but can elect to be treated by a physician of their choice (usually located within 25 miles of residence/work). Supervisors must issue a Medical Referral (OPNAV 5100/9) (formerly called Dispensary Permit) to the employee to be treated at the Occupational Medicine Clinic. This form is also available on the HRO web page. If our physician is not available, employees can go to an Urgent Care Facility, i.e., Breton Medical for treatment. Employees are urged to contact the Occupational Medicine Clinic at 301-342-1496 for an appointment. Employees who sustain an on-the-job injury of such severity that requires immediate medical attention (severe lacerations, possible fractures and head/neck injuries) should be transported to the closest civilian emergency medical facility.

    For further guidance employees/supervisors can contact Ms. Debbie Owen at 301-342-6867 or Ms. Karen Delucca 732-323-4357.
