The Risk Management Division
The City of San Antonio Workers’ Compensation Program provides
reasonable and necessary medical and income benefits to employees injured
while on the job. Workers’ Compensation is
not health insurance. It
does not compensate you for loss or damage of your personal property. For more information, refer to
Administrative Directive 4.84 (PDF)

injury or illness.

Wage Statement (DWC 3 (WordDoc) ) must be completed for all employees who experience
lost time of one day or more. The form should be e-mailed to email@example.com.
Supplemental Report of Injury or Illness (DWC
6 (WordDoc) ) accounts for any period
of time lost from work for which the injured worker might be entitled
to Workers’ Compensation benefits. It also serves as written
notice of an employee's return to work after a period of temporary
disability and any changes in work status. The form should be
e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The City’s Office of Risk Management Division is ultimately responsible
for each claim. However, we utilize the services of TRISTAR Risk Management Services, a third-party administrator, to investigate, evaluate, and administer
benefits directly to the claimants. If you have any questions
or concerns relating to a specific claim, first contact TRISTAR Risk Management Services directly at (210) 404-0400.
