BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Health services firm gets OK to fund benefits through captive


The New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance has approved a plan by Healthcare Services Group Inc. to fund voluntary medical, life and short-term disability benefits through its New Jersey-based captive insurer.

Under the arrangement, disclosed Wednesday, the policies will be written by Companion Life Insurance Co. and will be 100% reinsured by HCSG Insurance Corp., the Bensalem, Pennsylvania-based health management services provider's captive insurer, which was licensed in January 2014.

“Healthcare Service Group's expansion of its captive insurance company is a testament to the company's innovation and another indicator of the strength of New Jersey's captive market,” Ken Kobylowski, the state's Banking and Insurance Commissioner, said in a statement.

The captive benefit funding arrangement also was approved earlier by the U.S. Department of Labor.
