Fraud Alert for DCMWC Providers: The "American Pulmonary Disease Board" recently sent letters to some Black Lung medical providers requesting a payment of $300.00 to receive approval of their qualifications to be an enrolled provider under the Federal Black Lung Program, and an expedited fee of $450.00 to readily prompt the process. If you receive a letter from "American Pulmonary Disease Board" regarding approval of your qualification and certification, please do not respond to this letter. The Division of Coal Mine Worker’s Compensation Program does not endorse, sponsor, or share any provider information with external entities; nor does the Office of Worker’s Compensation Programs (OWCP) medical bill processing contractor participate in data sharing. DCMWC takes information security very seriously and ask that you also be vigilant in your effort, to prevent potential fraud schemes. If you have questions about the letter, or other questions about the program or your claim, contact us toll-free at 800-347-2502.
