When you have been hurt at work in Texas, you are entitled to seek reimbursement for all necessary medical treatment to help you recover from your injury. You have some options with respect to who you select as your treating physician. You may choose any doctor who is listed on the Division of Workers’ Compensation’s Approved Doctor List (ADL), found online at www.tdi.texas.gov.
Your treating physician will carefully evaluate your condition to determine which injuries are work-related and which are not. Workers’ compensation insurance will not pay for non-work-related injuries that are treated at the same time as work-related injuries. You can seek treatment immediately, but only treatment through an approved doctor will be reimbursed. You also have the right to request a new treating physician, but must submit your request to the Division office and must choose a replacement from the ADL.
