What is workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation is an employer-funded benefit that covers medical expenses for employees who get injured on the job. While you receive the medical care needed to recover from a work-related injury, you don’t have to worry about paying for care. 

The RGV Urgent Care Clinic specialists help you get reimbursed and fill out the necessary paperwork.

What are the benefits of workers’ compensation?

The main benefit of workers’ compensation care at RGV Urgent Care Clinic is not paying for the medical care you receive.
