Workers’ Compensation Insurance (WCI) is designed to provide medical benefits and, in some cases, income benefits to employees on the payroll of the Health Science Center who suffer occupational injury or disease in the course and scope of employment. Workers’ Compensation Insurance is not health insurance, nor does it provide compensation for damage to or loss of personal property.
UT Health Science Center at San Antonio is ranked third lowest among all health education institutions for injury cost per employee. Additionally, there was more than a $50,000 reduction in total benefit expenditures between FY2005 and FY2006 and a decrease in premium rates between FY2006 and FY 2007.
The University of Texas System is self-insured and self-administered for workers’ compensation. No private insurance company is involved in processing, workers’ compensation claims. The workers’ compensation program is administered by the University of Texas System Office of Risk Management Workers’ Compensation Insurance.
The Environmental Health & Safety Department manages the workers’ compensation process by:
