Information on Bill Processing for the Federal Black Lung Program

As of February 7, 2005, the Division of Coal Mine Workers' Compensation (DCMWC) contracted with Affiliated Computer Services (ACS) to handle all medical bill processing.

Medical Providers can use our on-line tool at http://owcp.dol.acs-inc.com to:

Check Eligibility - Learn if a patient is covered for a particular procedure. Providers may print a denial letter if the service is not covered by the Federal Black Lung Program.

Check Bill Payment - Learn status of submitted bills. Providers can view Remittance Vouchers (RVs).
