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”.

La. comp rate requests trending down: Donelon


BATON ROUGE, La.--Twenty-seven insurers representing 22% of Louisiana's workers compensation market have filed for an average 15.9% rate decrease, according to Louisiana Commissioner of Insurance Jim Donelon.

As more insurers file their rates, the trend will likely continue, the commissioner said in a statement Friday. He attributed falling rates to a 15.8% decrease in insurer loss costs.

Louisiana's workers comp market is estimated to total $1.03 billion, the commissioner said. The 27 companies that have filed rates, which are expected to take effect in June, account for $230 million in market share.
