If the information on the form is not correct, you must correct that information. Medical Benefit Information If the beneficiary is a miner, the Black Lung Disability Trust Fund is responsible for payment of his black lung-related medical expenses. However, if the beneficiary also receives benefits for a black lung condition from a state or another Federal workers’ compensation program, the black lung-related medical expenses may be paid, partially or totally, by the party who pays those benefits. Unless another party is responsible for payment of the black lung-related medical expenses, the miner should continue to use the Black Lung Identification Card (the red and white card) when receiving medical treatment for his/her black lung condition. Examples of black lung-related medical services are: hospitalizations, doctor’s office visits, medically prescribed drugs, certain types of medical equipment (such as oxygen machines), home nursing services, pulmonary rehabilitation, and the reasonable cost for travel to and from a medical facility for the treatment of the black lung condition. If you have any questions concerning the medical coverage for the miner’s black lung condition, you should contact your Black Lung District Office at the toll-free 800-number appearing at the top left corner of this page.
