Federal agencies are required by regulation to submit an employee's Notice of Injury (Form CA-1 or CA-2) within 10 working days (or 14 calendar days) of receiving it from an employee, if lost time from work or medical expenses are claimed or anticipated [20 CFR 10.110(a)]. Regulations require that the CA-7 should be submitted no later than 5 working days (or 7 calendar days) after its receipt from the employee [20 CFR 10.112(b)]. This prompt submission is critical if OWCP is to be able to serve injured workers' needs, and especially to ensure that medical bills can be processed timely.
