Department of Labor Selects Xerox to Administer Disability Compensation Programs08:00 EDT Thursday, September 12, 2013
NORWALK, Conn. (Business Wire) -- The Office of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP) has signed a three-year, $89 million contract renewal with Xerox (NYSE:XRX) to manage medical bills.
Under the agreement, Xerox will continue to provide medical and pharmacy bill processing, bills resolution, provider enrollment, and call-center support for the OWCP, as well as imaging and web portal management.
OWCP manages three disability compensation programs including the Federal Employees' Compensation Act (FECA) program, the Black Lung Benefits Act (BLBA) program, and the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA).
“Xerox processes a large volume of paper and electronic claims for the OWCP -- more than 60,000 each day,” said Bill Cornelius, vice president, Xerox Federal Solutions. “With the new contract, Xerox will further simplify the billing process for OWCP and the Department of Labor so they can continue to focus on serving government employees and citizens covered by the various disability compensation programs.”
