Recurrence of Medical Condition [Employee Compensation] Law and Legal Definition

According to 20 CFR 10.5 [Title 20. Employees' Benefits; Chapter I. Office Of Workers' Compensation Programs, Department Of Labor; Subchapter B. Federal Employees' Compensation Act; Part 10 Claims For Compensation Under The Federal Employees' Compensation Act, As Amended; Subpart A. General Provisions; Definitions And Forms], ‘recurrence of medical condition’ means a documented need for further medical treatment after release from treatment for the accepted condition or injury when there is no accompanying work stoppage. Continuous treatment for the original condition or injury is not considered a "need for further medical treatment after release from treatment," nor is an examination without treatment.
