Getting OHP Services

Operational Status

The HealthPoint Occupational Health Program (OHP) is no longer accepting walk-ins. For work-related injuries that need immediate treatment, please seek care at UT Health Austin or another IMO provider.

If your work-related injury is not an emergency, please call our office at 512-471-4647 and we will assess your injury and schedule accordingly.

For work-related injuries, please complete the Incident Injury Form (PDF) and fax completed form to 512-471-7008 and 512-232-3524


The Occupational Health Program (OHP) partners with the employee, Environmental Health & Safety (EHS), and Human Resources (HR) to understand working conditions and to ensure that precautions are taken to protect the university’s most valuable asset—our employees.

Work injury treatment provided by OHP is not filed as workers’ compensation and is not subject to the IMO Provider Network requirements. If OHP refers you for follow-up to an external provider, typically a workers’ compensation claim will be submitted to UT System and OHP will refer you to a provider in the IMO Provider Network.

For treatment, management, and follow-up of work-related injuries and illnesses please call the Occupational Health Program at 512-471-4647.
