Texas workers compensation laws have changed in recent years. Texas has a Division of Workers Compensation that is part of the state's Department of Insurance, and the state's workers comp system puts a lot more responsibility on the injured/ill employee than many other states do.
Workers Compensation Insurance Is Not Always Required
For example, workers compensation insurance is not required for all employers in Texas . In addition, it's the employee's responsibility to know or find out whether he or she is in a workers compensation health care network.
Exceptions and Limitations to Texas Workers Compensation Benefits
In Texas, the medical bill coverage and/or replacement of a portion of the lost wages may only be granted if the employer has workers compensation insurance under the Texas Workers Compensation Act, and the work-related injury or illness causes a wage loss for more than seven days.
There are also a set of exceptions regarding Texas workers benefits, such as when the employee:
• was intoxicated at the time of the injury
• was injured by another person for personal reasons
• was injured by an act of God
• was injured during horseplay
• was injured while voluntarily participating in an off-work activity
• injured him- or herself on purpose or while trying to injure someone else
