Nuclear Care Partners (NCP) was created by nurses who specialize in caring for the men and women who worked at Cold War Era Department of Energy Sites, Uranium Mines and Atomic Labs in the United States. As an approved medical provider under the US Department of Labor, NCP outreaches to former atomic workers across the country to educate on available in-home medical benefits and monetary compensation to qualifying workers who are now chronically ill as a result of possible toxic exposure. Many individuals who qualify have never heard of these benefits, so NCP’s aim is to have a meaningful dialogue with as many atomic retirees as possible. The benefits and NCP’s services are provided at NO CHARGE to the claimants. Read their brochure here for links and telephone numbers to reach them. For more information specifically for GA employees concerning the U.S. Department of Labor program to compensate radiation workers for occupational illness, please click here.
