What does filing a workman's comp claim have to do with Peace Corps?

Why can't RPCV's who were sent home sick get proper health care when it's clear they are still sick from service?

Are there any lawyers out there that can help RPCV's come together to fight against the injustices they face once home?

How can RPCV's who are sick get their own insurance when they are sick? If the Workman's Comp. claim is denied, how can a RPCV get treatment for PC related service?

Why can't the RPCV just be treated with respect, and given a simple medical card that will actually pay for any peace corps related illnesses.

I'm still sick, and waiting to hear back from the claim I filed through Workmans Comp. I also tried to get insurance through Blue Cross. Of course, they said any current medical conditions will not be covered. Can anyone out there please email me one reason why I shouldn't contact my senator, or attorney to pursue a lawsuit against Peace Corps Medical Services for the pain I now suffer from my time served?

I feel betrayed and alone, like my volunteer time was unappreciated and devalued due to the lack of response I'm getting from the Peace Corps Med. Office in D.C. I wonder how many of the PC Reps who you talk to on the phone actually served overseas, and were exposed to every illness under the sun...?

I wonder how many of the suits in D.C. actually have ever been out of the U.S.? Like I said I'm very upset and willing to get a group of us together who have suffered injustices after returning home. How can one help someone else if they are sick themselves? Fix your philosophy Peace Corps, and treat your own better!
