DHLWC: File 202 in NY, case mail to JAX

by Matthew H. Ammerman on November 14th, 2013

Big change! The DLHWC issued notice that effective 12/2/2013 parties should submit “case create” forms to the New York OWCP. For employers that means you must file your Longshore Report of Injury (LS-202) here as of the effective date:



 
U. S. Department of Labor
Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs
Division of Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation
201 Varick Street, Room 740
Post Office Box 249
New York, NY 10014-0249
 
FAX (646) 264-3002

 
All case-related mail thereafter, e.g., letters, medical, LS-206, LS-207, et al. should bear the OWCP number and be sent here AFTER the case is created:
 
U. S. Department of Labor
Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs
Division of Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation
400 West Bay Street, Suite 63A, Box 28
Jacksonville, FL 32202
 
FAX (904) 357-4787

 
Checks payable to the DOL for penalties, etc. now go to the DLHWC’s Branch of Financial Management in Washington, D.C.

The details are in the notice available on the OWCP's website, along with FAQs here: http://www.dol.gov/owcp/dlhwc/index.htm#.UPcuHWc5ht0
 
Though not stated in the notice, the implication is that all correspondence will be scanned at the central repositories.
 
This should be interesting.
