Return to Work / Stay at Work

Información Sobre el Regreso al Trabajo en Español

The timely return of injured employees to productive roles in the Texas workforce is one of the key components of the Division of Workers' Compensation's (DWC's) mission. Return to work is a responsibility shared by employers, employees, health care providers, insurance carriers and the DWC.

The longer an employee is away from work after an injury, the harder it is for him or her to get back to work at all; and the longer an employee is away from work, the higher are the employer's workers' compensation costs and related business costs.

The following information is provided to help employers, injured employees and health care providers appreciate the benefits of return to work and to guide them in fulfilling their respective roles. The employer resources assist employers to create and implement effective return-to-work procedures--a key element in returning injured employees to productive work.

How to Apply for Inclusion in the Registry

Private providers of vocational rehabilitation services may apply to be listed in the Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC) Registry of Private Providers of Vocational Rehabilitation Services, provided below.

28 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §136.2 requires a private provider who wishes to be included in the DWC's registry to complete, sign and submit an agency-approved registration form. Section 136.2(b)(5) requires a statement showing that the private provider is credentialed as an LPC, CCM, CRC, CVE or CDMS.

Although only individual private providers can be included in the registry, an individual provider may list a business affiliation if desired. The application is valid for a one-year period.

To apply, please complete DWC Form-065 and mail or fax your application and attachments to:

Texas Department of Insurance
Division of Workers' Compensation
Outreach Planning & Coordination, MS-5
7551 Metro Center Drive, Ste. 100
Austin, TX 78744-1645
Fax: 512-804-4817

After reviewing the application and attachments to determine if the provider meets the qualifications set out in Rule 136.2, the DWC will send the provider written results of the review.

If you have any questions, please call DWC Outreach at 512-804-4685.
