The Texas Division of Insurance created the Texas Health Care Network in 2005 to provide a tool to employers in their effort to control rising costs of claims. A major part of this legislation was the creation and certification of networks of providers that were focused on return to work and treatment guidelines, and provide timely, appropriate medical care to the injured worker. The information below outlines the process of the HCN.
- The benefits of a PPO network can only be obtained through a certified HCN.
- Employer implementation is required. Packets must be in English, Spanish and any other language for which the employer has a 10% employee population.
- Opt out is not permitted for employees.
