Nuclear and Uranium Worker Benefits
The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) and the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) make it possible for qualified nuclear workers and uranium miners to get free healthcare services—help that can prove invaluable for both you and your family. If you qualify for benefits and you have an accepted illness, you may be eligible for:
- Up To $400,000 In Compensation
- No-Cost In-Home Health Care (no co-pays or deductions)
- Medical Travel Reimbursement
- Oxygen Supply & Medication Coverage
- Family Caregiver Compensation (Hourly wage for the care you already provide)
- Help with the process (assistance with the paperwork requirements and navigating the “system”)
At Twilight Health, we are dedicated to providing the highest quality healthcare available for EEOICPA/RECA beneficiaries. We assist energy workers from all covered facilities that were involved in the nuclear and uranium industry.
Find out if you are eligible by contacting us today.
And if you already have benefits, please be sure to get in touch with us as soon as possible for a free benefits analysis to ensure you’re receiving the full scope of benefits available to you.
Who We Serve
When you are approved for medical benefits through EEOICPA/RECA, you will be issued a “white card”. The white card has many similarities to other health insurance membership cards, but it is designed specifically for EEOICPA/RECA beneficiaries. It includes information about which of the covered illnesses you can receive free treatment for. Accepted illnesses include radiogenic cancer, chronic beryllium disease and a wide range of other conditions.
White Card Eligibility
If you do not have a white card already and you believe you could qualify for benefits, you should apply immediately. Any individual who worked at a Department of Energy nuclear facility and who suffers from an illness due to exposure is eligible to receive benefits. Eligibility covers subcontractors, contractors and vendors as well as official employees of the Department of Energy.
If you have questions about your eligibility for a white card, please get in touch with our team at Twilight Health and we will be happy to assist you.
White Card Benefits
The white card offers numerous benefits, including:
- Up to $400,000 in compensation
- Prescription drugs
- Visits to the doctor
- In-home health care
- Oxygen supplies
- Gym and health club membership fees
- Equipment for exercising at home
- Transplants, including organ and stem cells
- Modifications to home and automobile
- Chiropractor and acupuncture treatments

- Medical alert systems
- Hospice care
- Mental health treatments

Understanding RECA Benefits
The Radiation Exposure Compensation Act ensures that eligible ore transporters, uranium miners and millers get much-needed financial compensation if they developed certain diseases due to radiation exposure. It is possible to get a lump sum of $100,000 if you were an eligible ore transporter, uranium miner or miller. If you participated in weapons testing on-site you’re eligible to receive $75,000. Residents who lived in the testing area can also get $50,000.
Understanding EEOICPA Benefits

Free services include doctor visits, medications, medical travel, home health care, hospice care, nursing home care, assisted living, modifications to your home and vehicle, medical equipment, oxygen supplies, vehicle purchases, extended care facilities and more.
