Workers' Compensation

Workers' compensation insurance is a form of insurance specifically designed to provide medical payments, and in some cases, financial payments to employees on the payroll of The Texas A&M University System who suffer injuries, occupational diseases, or work related death in the course and scope of their employment. Worker's compensation is not health insurance, nor does it provide compensation for damage to, or loss of personal property.

The Texas A&M University System is self-insured and self-administered for workers’ compensation. There is no private insurance company involved in the process. The entire worker's compensation insurance program is administered by the A&M System Risk Management Office. HSC Risk Management Department manages the workers’ compensation process with assistance from Environmental Health and Safety and Human Resources for the Texas A&M Health Science Center.

Procedures and Forms
