Video: Complying With Network Requirements

Medical costs in the Texas workers’ compensation system have historically been among the highest in the country. In an effort to reduce costs and help injured workers return to productive employment, the Texas Department of Insurance authorized carriers to establish workers’ compensation health care networks in 2006.

Network health care providers are trained to treat workplace injuries. Their primary goal is to help injured workers recover and return to productive employment.

If you participate in your carrier’s network, you have responsibilities. One of those responsibilities is properly notifying your employees that they are covered by a network. If you do not, your injured workers do not have to seek treatment from a network health care provider.

Texas Mutual created this short video to explain employers’ network responsibilities. For more short videos about the claims process, visit http://www.texasmutual.com/employers/claimsvideos.shtm.
