Work Related Injuries (Worker's Compensation)
Bastrop ISD provides Workers’ Compensation benefits through the Texas Association of School Boards Risk Management Fund (TASB). All work-related injury or illness must be reported even if you do not seek medical treatment. Once a claim is reported and submitted, your workers’ compensation benefits begin. This is the only medical benefit you may use for the treatment of your specific claim/injury, including medical examinations and medications.
All work-related injuries must be reported to your supervisor immediately and a First Report of Injury form must be completed online with TASB. There are specific providers you have to use for Workers' Compensation medical treatment. In the event of an emergency, the employee may choose any hospital of choice. The providers listed in the document below are on a walk-in basis and do not require an appointment for Workers' Comp incidents. Make sure to let the front desk know that you are there for a Workers' Comp incident. In the event you have to miss work due to your injury it is your responsibility to work with your supervisor and ensure your absences are entered.
If you have questions, please call the Leave & Benefits Specialist, Cindy Torres Vargas, at 512-772-7160 or email@example.com.
Filing a First Report Injury Claim
Below is information that must be provided to the employee when they suffer a work-related injury. The reporting process has changed and either the employee, campus/dept admin, nurse or secretary must enter the incident online to start the claims process. There are no longer paper forms to fill out.
- ALLY and/or FastAid Urgent Care ARE NOT APPROVED FACILITIES. EMPLOYEES SHOULD NOT SEEK TREATMENT FROM EITHER FACILITY AT THIS TIME. VISITS TO THESE FACILITIES WILL NOT BE COVERED BY TASB.
- PLEASE PRINT THE ENTIRE PACKET BELOW. THE INJURED EMPLOYEE WILL NEED TO TAKE SOME OF IT WITH THEM IF THEY SEEK MEDICAL TREATMENT AND THEN FOLLOW THE DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS FOR ENTERING THE INJURY. (It looks complicated, but once you get started you'll see that it's pretty simple. Just follow the instructions that start on page 7 of the document as you are entering the information.)
Once the claim has been entered the employee should expect a call within 24-36 hours from a TASB Adjuster regarding their injury. It is important that you take this call.TASB (Texas Association of School Boards) represents Bastrop ISD and will be the first point of contact for any questions or concerns they may have regarding the treatment or the injury itself.
