I updated my knowledge of the United States’ CICP on April 16, through a seminar put on by the RAND Corporation’s Justice Policy program.
In the US, you have the right to apply to the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program. Of the 700 plus people who have applied, 500 cases have been adjudicated and 200 are pending. The program found in favor of 39.
However, this DHHS program only pays for medical expenses and lost wages. Only 29 of the 39 claimants had unreimbursed medical expenses or wages.
So, the opportunity to obtain benefits exists, but the chance of obtaining benefits currently is 29/500 or 5.8%.
There is no transparency to the program, and no rules have been written regarding the adjudication of Covid injury cases.
I wonder what % of the population is aware of this?
