ARAWC > Fast Facts > Are Texas injury benefits “self-insurance?”

Not exactly.

  • Both workers’ compensation and Texas injury benefit programs allow employers to insure, self-fund or do a combination of insurance and self-funding. This is just a matter of how benefit claims are financed.
  • Over $100 million in Texas injury benefit insurance premiums are paid by Texas employers every year. Virtually any deductible or self-insured retention and coverage level is available in the open market. Insurance companies vigorously compete to offer the broadest coverage at the lowest price.
