The relationship between Align Networks and the United States Postal Service differs from our other relationships
in the following ways:
- Align Networks will coordinate the authorization requests to the OWCP by checking authorization electronically.
When authorization is not immediate, Align will forward the request to OWCP for review and adjudication.
- Align Networks will schedule appointments for any injured USPS employee who desires to avail themselves of the service,
but this is a voluntary program.
- All medical reports will be sent to OWCP. The USPS will not be provided with any information regarding the treatment
unless it is requested through OWCP.
- Any utilization issues that arise will be brought to the attention of the OWCP Claims Examiner responsible for the case,
who will make final decisions on further medical development as necessary.
