February 20, 2008

The Texas Department of Insurance has approved Texas Mutual Insurance Company’s request to expand its workers’ compensation health care network service area, the Austin-based insurer announced.

This latest expansion includes counties in the Lubbock and San Antonio areas. The expansion includes the following counties: Bailey, Cochran, Dickens, Fisher, Floyd, Hemphill, Hudspeth, Jones, Kent, Kimble, Motley, Real, Stonewall and Uvalde.

With this expansion, the network will be available to approximately 99 percent of the company’s policyholders.

Policyholders who are eligible for and choose the network option benefit from occupational health care services designed to control the costs of workplace injuries. The network’s focus is on helping injured workers get well and back on the job. Most policyholders who participate in the network also get a 12 percent annual premium discount.
