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”.

Ill. bill would bar alcohol, drug exclusions


SPRINGFIELD, Ill.--Illinois lawmakers have passed legislation prohibiting health benefit plans from excluding coverage for treatment of injuries occurring while an insured is under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

The legislation approved Tuesday by the Illinois House and Senate would amend Illinois' insurance code.

Oregon Gov. Ted Kulongoski signed similar legislation into law on May 9.

The District of Columbia, Delaware, Indiana and Maryland also recently adopted similar laws, according to Ensuring Solutions to Alcohol Problems, a part of the George Washington University Medical Center in Washington that works to address alcohol treatment issues.
