The Texas Labor Code applies to services provided to injured employees at military hospitals in Texas. Under the Labor Code, you are allowed to get health care services at a federal military treatment facility (FMTF) for an injury that is covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation policy.
What is a federal military treatment facility?
An FMTF is a medical facility that is part of the Military Health System of the United States Department of Defense. For example, Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) in San Antonio is a federal military treatment facility.
