Division of Compensation Analysis and Support (DCAS)
NIOSH created DCAS in 2001 to estimate work related radiation exposure (dose reconstruction) for certain workers with cancer who filed claims under Part B of the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000 (the Act/EEOICPA). Part B is a portion of the Act that provides compensation of $150,000 and medical benefits to employees (or their survivors) for illness caused by exposure to radiation, beryllium, and silicosis during their employment at DOE, its contractor, or subcontractor facilities.
