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”.

Colorado workers compensation loss cost rate to rise 3.7% in 2012


DENVER—Colorado employers will see a 3.7% workers compensation loss cost rate increase in 2012, the Colorado Division of Insurance announced Thursday.

The 2012 increase comes after a 3.4% increase in 2011 after nearly a decade of decreases, the insurance division said.

“While the number of claims has remained relatively flat over the last year, medical costs continue to increase, and this has led to the need for an increase,” Commissioner of Insurance Jim Riesberg said in a statement. “Part of the responsibilities of the Division of Insurance include ensuring rates are adequate to pay for future losses. Our analysis indicates a slight increase is required to ensure workers compensation premiums remain adequate.”
