This is the third benefit provided by Federal Workers’ Compensation. The Award is for injuries to specific body parts. The weekly value of the specific body part is specified by a “Schedule”. Not all body parts are included. For example, head, necks, and backs are not scheduled. Therefore, they may have no economic value. However, penis, vagina, and breasts are covered. The evaluation of the body part must be done in accordance with the 6th edition of the AMA Guide and the July/August 2009 AMA Guide Newsletter.
