Medical Screenings & Medical Benefits

Former Nuclear workers are encouraged to have a FREE medical screening every 3 years to help detect any possible work related illnesses due to radiation or chemicals and toxins.

The 3 main programs that provide the free medical screenings are The Workers Health Protection Program (WHPP), The National Supplemental Screening Program (NSSP), and Building Trades National Medical Screening Program (BTMED). Please click the links or give us a call to help determine which screening program covers you!

Impairment Rating

If you have the DOL white medical card, you are eligible to file for an impairment rating every 2 years. If you contract an additional illness prior to that 2 years, you are able to file that illness. If the new illness is approved, you may have an impairment rating at that time. The impairment ratings are only able to be completed by Impairment Specialists who are enrolled with the DOL. They must use the American Medical Association’s Guide 5th Addition. Impairment ratings allow additional compensation up to $250,000.00 under part E of the program. This also allows additional medical care if approved.
