Cancer Compensation Process
90% of claims we process successfully result in financial compensation for our clients
If you or a family member may have been exposed to government-created radiation and were consequently diagnosed with cancer, we can help.
The U.S. government has set aside compensation funds in these cases – and, since 1995, we’ve been helping individuals file the appropriate claims to collect the money due to them. Our track record speaks for itself: More than 90 percent of the claims we process successfully result in financial compensation for our clients.
The steps we take on your behalf include:
- Document preparation
- Research and investigation
- Claim submittal
You will find that each of our departments has its own expertise – and all of us here at the National Cancer Benefits Center (NCBC) work together to get money in your hands as quickly as possible. Our services are always tailored to your unique needs. Should you have any questions throughout the process, our call center is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
There are numerous compensation programs that have been funded by the United States Congress for those exposed to cancer-causing agents created by the federal government. As you might expect, each of these programs has its own set of rules, qualifying criteria, and claim submittal requirements. On top of that, the legal requirements frequently change as the federal government passes amendments or updates to the law.
We work closely with attorneys around the country to ensure we stay abreast of legislative changes to the programs and understand what these updates may mean for you. This is how we are able to ensure you are filing the correct type of claim, under the appropriate program, that will get you the largest monetary award.
Due to our more than 25 years’ experience filing claims on behalf of individuals exposed to these types of government-created radiation and elements, we are especially adept at evaluating a new client’s situation and assessing their qualification for one of these government-funded cancer compensation programs.
Our document preparation department works closely with our clients to prepare all the necessary documents throughout the entire claims process.
You will find that our document preparation staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and ready and able to answer any questions you may have. We are here to guide you through the process and to make it as quick and easy for you as possible.
In order for you to obtain a compensation award, you must show that you are an eligible beneficiary of one of the programs. That means we will need to obtain documents proving who you are, as well as confirming the identity of any others who may be claiming part of the award. In addition, we will need documentation that reveals the relationship between you and the person for whom the claim is being filed, even if it’s for yourself.
We must be able to prove that the individual for whom the claim is being filed was diagnosed with one of the compensable cancers or illnesses for the particular government-funded program you are submitting your claim to.
If necessary, our research team can help to obtain these medical documents. We have a direct connection to doctors, public and veterans affairs hospitals, and cancer centers throughout the U.S. We also have networks of contacts within the health insurance industry and with many employers and unions.
It is critical to be able to prove that the claimant was present at a certain place and time, and therefore was exposed to the government-created radiation or substance at issue.
At NCBC, we understand the legal requirements of these programs as set forth by the United States Congress. Our research team can help you obtain the necessary presence documents to meet those requirements.
In addition, our investigative team has access to local and state archives and historical societies, as well as churches, fraternal organizations, utility companies, and unions – plus hundreds of other organizations throughout the U.S.
Research and Investigation
Our research team is dedicated to helping you with any special documents that are needed for your particular claim. Whether it involves personal identification, medical documents, or proof of presence in a particular geographic region during a particular time, we can help. And if you need help acquiring documents, our researchers can utilize our network of connections in cities, counties, and states throughout the U.S., including within the federal government.
Our investigative branch works behind the scenes and will get involved with your claim, if and when our research team runs into roadblocks in obtaining documents that are required to get your claim approved and paid. Our investigators can contract with field support when specialized expertise is necessary to obtain a particular document.
For example, we have oncologists and other cancer specialists available for their expert opinion when needed, and to help win any disputes regarding a claimant’s medical condition or to provide the medical documentation needed for the claim.
