When federal employees encounter work-related injuries, they have the flexibility to choose their healthcare provider, provided the provider is certified by the Department of Labor (DOL).
At Ark-La-Tex Health Center, we specialize in addressing OWCP claims as certified DOL providers. Committed to delivering top-notch care, the Federal Injury Institute at Ark-La-Tex Health Center is dedicated to supporting federal employees in need of medical services for work-related injuries.
