NCC Sends Letter Supporting Legislation that Improves Access to Workers’ Compensation for Injured Federal Workers
On July 28, fifty-one members of the Nursing Community Coalition (NCC) signed onto a letter to the U.S. Senate supporting consideration and passage of H.R. 6087, the Improving Access to Workers’ Compensation for Injured Federal Workers Act. This bipartisan legislation would retire outdated barriers in the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA) that limit the ability of NPs to provide care and treatment for injured or ill federal employees.
