      thanks for the letter. BTW how do you get into the system. My doctor thinks that my condition is related to some asbestos that I inhaled during my PCV days.

       

      do you know who I could contact or how to start the process?

       

      Thanks

        As far as I know, we are still using this list. As
        always, I haven't experienced the same problems as many
        others on the list, except for the constant change of case
        workers. I think this is because I go through the Seattle
        office. I have been thinking of writing a letter to the
        Peace Corps, along with my representative, as my condition
        (Lariam induced) is still largely a mystery - although my
        psychologist thinks that it is brain damage. Anyway, I'm
        hoping that everything will go okay with billing when I
        see a specialist at UCLA in May. It is sad hoping that
        the CAT scans show brain damage, but at least it will be
        an answer.

        Contact the Peace Corps and tell them you want to file a FECA claim. They will send you all the paperwork. -- Felicia

              has anyone had any luck talking to a lawyer? i don't
              want to sue or anything, i just want to get a better
              sense for what my rights are at this point. has anyone
              found a lawyer who actually seems to know (ie. knows
              more than we do?)

              i haven't filed any claims in a while and don't know
              if it has been too long. since i don't have great
              supporting documentation (ie. notes from a MD) in the
              interim, i'm not sure if i can even reasonably expect
              any coverage at this point, even though i have never
              stopped my care (just been paying out of pocket).

              i'm in vermont. when i looked into this same question
              in wisconsin, i found a lot of state workers comp
              lawyers, but found no federal ones locally.

              thanks for any thoughts.

                You are absolutely correct, I talked to a workers'
                comp lawyer last week and he just shrugged his
                shoulders saying if you don't have a doctor willing to
                go to bat for you it is a lost cause with the DOL, I
                got the same sort of response when I talked to the
                lawyers that work for the Office of Inspector General,
                basically they ended up telling me they work to
                protect the Peace Corps and not former volunteers and
                if I had a problem go find a lawyer.
