Workers' Compensation Insurance (WC) provided by The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) is funded by The University of Texas System (UT System) through a self-insured WC program. Cannon Cochran Management Services Inc. (CCMSI) administers this program. Administering the program includes receiving, investigating, and making liability determinations on WCI claims; determining the reasonableness and necessity of medical treatment and services; generating income benefit payments to injured employees and medical payments to health care providers. All employees of UTA whose names appear on the payroll are eligible for Workers' Compensation Insurance.

The Environmental Health & Safety Office (EH&S) is responsible for coordinating the UTA Workers' Compensation Program. The UTA WC Claims Analyst serves as a facilitator between UTA injured employees and all UT System WC Insurance entities by submitting appropriate forms in a timely manner and making every effort to negotiate modified duty assignments.

Employees who choose to receive medical attention, please be advised:

  • UT System has contracted with Injury Management Organization Med Select, a certified WC health care provider, to provide medical care for employees who experience a work-related injury. Click here to find a provider: https://injurymanagement.com/find-a-provider/
  • OR see Providers Nearest to the University
  • In an emergency situation, employees should seek care from the nearest urgent care facility or hospital ER. However, follow-up care must be received from a network provider. Your treating doctor will coordinate all medical care and make referrals for diagnostic testing or to be seen by a specialist.
  • Unless the injured employee has received medical treatment from an unauthorized physician, the employee should not be billed directly for health care intended to treat a work-related injury. If the employee receives a bill from a health care provider, the employee is advised to send the invoice to the EH&S WC Program immediately. All medical related expenses are subject to fee guidelines established by Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers' Compensation.
  • Student workers should NOT seek medical treatment at UTA Health Services because this clinic is not an approved provider for work-related injuries.
