Workers' Compensation

Houston Independent School District has been self-insured for Workers’ Compensation claims since 1979.  The district is committed to the health and safety of all employees in the workplace.  Houston ISD implemented the HISD WC 504 Provider Panel as its workers’ compensation health care provider panel. The panel is built around occupational health care providers for workers compensation injuries to provide prompt, appropriate medical treatment aimed at early and safe return to work.  Cannon Cochran Management Services, Inc. (CCMSI) is the district’s claims administrator for Workers’ Compensation claims.
