If I am injured on the job, who pays for prescriptions?

This is a tricky question. In Texas, there are four potential answers.  

First, if your employer is part of the Texas Workers’ Compensation System and carries workers’ comp insurance, then workers’ comp insurance should pay.  

If your employer doesn’t carry worker’s compensation insurance (we call these non-subscribers), then your employer may have purchased or put into place an employee benefit program that pays for medical care from on-the-job injuries.  

If your employer doesn’t carry workers’ comp insurance and doesn’t have a replacement policy, then your health insurance would typically be next in line. And if you don’t have health insurance, then you might get stuck paying for the bills yourself.
