OWCP pays the claimant for travel to and from the medical provider, to and from any therapy treatments, and to and from the pharmacy for medicine used for the injuries. Caution, you must submit your request for travel pay on form OWCP Form 957 – Medical Travel Refund Request within one year of the travel.
For this reason, it is advised to submit your travel pay every June and December. This will assure the claimant of filing in a regular and timely way.
Get a printout from your medical provider, therapist, or pharmacy, showing how often you were there and get a copy of the mileage from your home or work locations to the medical locations using an online mapping site such as http://MapQuest.com, http://maps.google.com, or http://maps.yahoo.com.
