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”.

Indiana approves 12.8% comp rate decrease

Most businesses in Indiana will spend less on workers compensation insurance in 2018 after the Indiana Department of Insurance on Friday approved a 12.8% rate decrease, which was proposed by the Indiana Compensation Rating Bureau. 

The filing detailed an overall loss cost reduction of 12.1%, according to the bureau.

The 12.8% decrease is the largest change in more than 25 years and follows last year’s decrease of 9.3%, the bureau reported. 

“Looking at recent years changes, the last five years (2014-2018) result in an overall decrease in costs of -28.4%. The three-year period just prior to that (2011-2013) resulted in an overall increase of 9.6%,” per a memo issued Friday.
