A denied claims specialist will be meeting later this month with former atomic workers in eastern Idaho whose claims for compensation for possible work-related illnesses were denied.

Former atomic workers nationwide, such as former Idaho National Laboratory employees, employees of other national labs and uranium miners, who have developed serious illnesses due to radiation and toxin exposure are eligible for care under the federal Energy Employee Occupational Illness Program Act. Angela Hays Carey, who works for Nuclear Care Partners, specializes in such claims.

“I see many people who were denied their EEOICPA benefits simply because they are missing paperwork,” Carey said in a statement. “They give up on the filing process because they don’t know what they need to get to the next step in the filing process and get their claim approved. That’s why we’re having this event, to review workers’ claims and help them through the approval process.”

Carey will be available to review denial papers and answer questions, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. and by appointment:

• Sept. 24 at the Nuclear Care Partners office, 354 West Sunnyside Road, Idaho Falls

• Sept. 25 at Golden West Cafe, 2431 Highway 20, Arco

• Sept. 26 at the Blackfoot Library, 129 North Broadway, St., Blackfoot

• Sept. 27 at Bru House Galilei, 502 North Main St., Pocatello

To make an appointment, call 208-715-3025. If someone is unable to attend they can request a free information kit. People who have been denied benefit should bring their denial paperwork with them.
