      Do you have a chronic illness or disability related to your Peace Corps
      service? Are you dealing with OWCP to obtain medical benefits or
      disability payments? If so, the following group may be of interest to
      you:

      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/owcp

      A group of RPCVs with OWCP claims are banding together in an attempt to
      get better service from OWCP, PC Medical Office, etc.

      Please feel free to join us!

        Pattie,

        I think your first inquiry should be made to the Peace Corps Medical Office.
        If I remember correctly, Peace Corps was responsible for my initial stateside
        medical evaluation, then after my medical condition (asthma) was confirmed, the
        Medical Office helped me initiate the OWCP claims process.

        Hope this helps.

        Kevin
