Do Texas injury benefit programs remain static over time?

No.

  • Texas injury benefit programs are commonly reviewed on an ongoing basis, continually improving benefit entitlements and outcomes.
  • Change in traditional workers’ compensation programs occurs at a glacial pace. The ability to more rapidly respond to best medical and claims handling practices are a key advantage of Texas injury benefit programs. They do not have to wait on enabling legislation and rules. If a need or new best practice is identified, it can be immediately acted upon in a competitive environment that requires full disclosure to all covered workers, and in which employers seek value and better medical outcomes.
