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”.

Guardian expands alternative treatments for group health plans


NEW YORK—Guardian Life Insurance Co. of America is providing its group medical plan members expanded access to discounts for a variety of alternative medical treatments.

Guardian, which provides employee and voluntary benefits to small and midsize businesses, has increased plan access to discounts for such disciplines as yoga, Pilates, personal training, massage/bodywork, nutritional counseling, acupuncture, chiropractic, homeopathy, hypnotherapy, qigong, tai chi and holistic medicine.

New York-based Guardian's Complementary Alternative Medicine discount program provides up to 30% off the cost of services and treatment at over 36,000 providers. While many Guardian medical plans already offer coverage for alternative medicine procedures, this program expands discipline choices, locations and providers.

The Complementary Alternative Medicine program was developed in conjunction with Whole Health Networks. Guardian medical plan members can get information about the practitioner network online at
