TXANS WILL CONTINUE TO DEFEND RESPONSIBLE NONSUBSCRIBER OPTION DURING 79TH LEGISLATURE

Lawmakers are considering new reform proposals because workers' compensation costs in Texas continue to rank as some of the highest in the nation. These new proposals will include the establishment of medical networks, changing the structure of the Texas Workers' Compensation Commission, return-to-work program incentives and more.

Texas remains the only state in the nation to maintain a generally elective workers' compensation system and currently over 100,000 Texas businesses operate as nonsubscribers. As lawmakers discuss workers' compensation, we anticipate they will also consider the benefit programs being utilized by nonsubscribers, including a possible look at nonsubscriber dispute resolution policies.

During the past fifteen years TXANS has successfully led the effort to protect nonsubscription in Texas and TXANS will continue to fight for Texas nonsubscribers during the 79th legislative session. Throughout the session, TXANS will provide updates regarding the status of legislation affecting both subscribing and nonsubscribing businesses. The updates are aimed at keeping business professionals aware of the activities taking place in Austin but they will also provide suggested ways you can be involved and affect positive change. Please encourage anyone that would like to receive TXANS' legislative updates to register at:

Finally, TXANS has scheduled a series of local meetings in cities across Texas to discuss the 79th Legislature and how various proposals slated for consideration could affect your business.
