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, Dr. Charlot, 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 Dr. Charlot 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.
Service for Wounded Warriors, Families & Caregivers
The DoD announced today that the Military OneSource service has established a Wounded Warrior Resource Center telephone number and e-mail address for service members and their families, if they have concerns or other difficulties during their recovery process. Service members and their family members can now call (800) 342-9647 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org 24/7 to request support. Assistance provided by the resource center will not replace the specialized wounded warrior programs established by each of the military services, but it will offer another avenue of assistance for military facilities, health care services, and/or benefits information.
