PUBLIC BURDEN
According to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, no persons are required to respond to a collection of information unless such collection displays
a valid OMB control number. Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 10 minutes per response, including
time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the
collection of information. The obligation to respond to this collection is voluntary (5 U.S.C. 8101 et seq; 30 USC 901 et seq; 42 USC 7384 et seq,)
to obtain or retain a benefit. Send comments regarding the burden estimate or any other aspect of this collection of information, including

PRIVACY ACT STATEMENT
The Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (5 U.S.C. 552a) authorizes OWCP to ask for information needed in the administration of the FECA, Black
Lung and EEOICPA programs. Authority to collect information is in 5 USC 8101 et seq., the Black Lung Benefits Act (BLBA), 30 USC 901 et seq.,
and the Energy Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000 (EEOICPA), 42 U.S.C. 7384 et seq., and P.L. 103-196. The
information we obtain with this form is used to identify you and to determine your eligibility for reimbursement. It is also used to decide if the
services and supplies you received are covered by these programs and to ensure that proper payment is made. There are no penalties for failure to
supply information; however, failure to furnish information regarding the medical service(s) received or the amount charged will prevent payment of
the claim. The information may also be given to other providers of services, carriers, intermediaries, medical review boards, health plans, and other
organizations or Federal agencies, for the effective administration of Federal provisions that require other third party payers to pay primary to
Federal programs, and as otherwise necessary to administer these programs. For example, it may be necessary to disclose information about the
benefits you have used to a hospital or doctor. Additional disclosures are made through routine uses for information contained in systems of
records. See Department of Labor systems DOL/GOVT-1, DOL/ESA-6 and DOL/ESA-49 published in the Federal Register, Vol. 67, page 16816,
Mon. April 8, 2002, or as updated and republished.
