NOTICE OF DENIAL OF REQUEST FOR RECONSIDERATION

 

This is in response to your letter of January 29, 2011 requesting reconsideration of the January 12, 2011 Final Decision of the Final Adjudication Branch (FAB). For the reasons set forth below, your request for reconsideration is denied.

 

The January 12, 2011 Final Decision found that your lung cancer was “not at least as likely as not” related to your employment at the Pinellas Plant. It was on this basis that your Part B claim was denied under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA). Further, the final decision was based on the evidence of file, which included the dose reconstruction report, your letters of objection, the hearing transcript and comments you submitted regarding the hearing transcript.

 

As you have not submitted any new argument or evidence which justifies reconsideration of the January 12, 2011 final decision, I must deny your request. Accordingly, the decision of the FAB denying your Part B claim is final on the date of issuance of this denial of your request for reconsideration. 20 C.F.R. § 30.319(c)(2).
