The U.S. Department of Labor selected Xerox to administer disability compensation programs connected with the Office of Workers’ Compensation. The new three-year contract is worth $89 million and is a renewal of an existing Xerox government contract.
Xerox will provide pharmacy and medical bill processing for the Office of Workers’ Compensation Program (OWCP) along with other services including call center support, website management, billing management, imaging, and provider enrollment support.
The 75-year-old company is still a world leader in document management equipment. Xerox currently processes more than 60,000 OWCP paper and electronic claims daily. The contract renewal will allow the company to implement a simplified billing process for both OWCP and the Department of Labor. Streamlined billing will allow these departments to focus more energy on their core missions, according to Bill Cornelius, Xerox Federal Solutions vice president.
Headquartered in Norwalk, Conn., Xerox has more than 140,000 employees located in 160 countries with services that cater to both small and large organizations and businesses.
OWCP handles three disability compensation schemes: The Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA), the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) and the Black Lung Benefits Act (BLBA) programs.
