Workers' Compensation is a state-regulated, no-fault insurance program that provides Spring ISD employees with income and medical benefits if a work-related injury or illness is sustained.
Effective February 1, 2019, Spring ISD implemented a new provider panel for its self-funded Workers’ Compensation Program. This panel was created under Chapter 791 of the Texas Government Code (the Interlocal Cooperation Act) and Section 504.053 of the Texas Labor Code (504 Medical Care Program) and is referred to as My Texas Direct.
Therefore, all employees with an on-the-job injury or illness are required to use a medical provider from the approved My Texas Direct provider list. Failure to use an approved My Texas Direct medical provider can result in non-coverage of expenses for job-related injuries!
My Texas Direct is designed to provide employees with quality, efficient, and effective medical care for on-the-job injuries or illnesses while returning the employee to work as soon as it is medically prudent to do so.
All worker's compensation claims are handled by Spring ISD's third-party claims administrator, Sedgwick Services. After the occurrence of an on-the-job injury or illness, the employee will be contacted by a Sedwick Services Adjuster.
