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”.
Arkansas has approved the state’s first special-purpose captive insurance company, which will back health care provider Baptist Health.
The insurer, Diamond Risk Insurance L.L.C., is a wholly owned subsidiary of the nonprofit health care organization based in Little Rock, Arkansas, which has eight hospitals as well as therapy and wellness centers, nursing schools and a retirement village, according to Baptist Health’s website.
The insurance provided via the captive will include liability and workers compensation coverage, a spokesman for the state said.
