Generally, MMI is reached when you have recovered as much as you are expected to from your injury/ illness OR it is reached statutorily; The Texas Workers' Compensation law establishes MMI is reached at 104 weeks from the date that income benefits began to accrue.
If your treating doctor is certified to perform the MMI exam he would do this when he believes you have reached MMI otherwise he can refer you to a doctor that he knows is certified to perform the exam.
Workers’ Compensation assists personnel when they have been injured on the job. Staff ensure that paperwork is filed correctly, follow-up treatment for injuries is received, and that employees get the proper care for those injuries. Working in conjunction with the Safety Office and the Wellness Center, the Workers’ Compensation section helps ensure that personnel receive appropriate medical intervention, resulting in a return to full-duty status as quickly as possible.
The Workers’ Compensation team provides information and assitance to employees injured in the course of employment. We provide the tools needed to navigate and manage the complex workers' compensation system.
Our Team includes a registered nurse and two very knowledgeable administrators. Customer service is our priority - we are now available seven days a week to accommodate your firefighter schedule. Please contact the Workers’ Compensation team if you have any questions about an injury on the job.
