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”.

Loss-cost increase in workers comp rates sought for South Carolina


COLUMBIA, S.C.—NCCI Holdings Inc. is seeking a 7.3% loss-cost increase in South Carolina’s workers compensation rates, the state’s Workers' Compensation Commission said.

The rate increase would take effect July 1 if approved by the South Carolina Department of Insurance.

Boca Raton, Fla.-based NCCI requested the rate hike based on deteriorating workers comp claims experience in South Carolina, as well as increasing frequency for indemnity and medical claims, according to a statement from the workers comp commission.

The commission said this is the first rate increase that NCCI has sought in South Carolina since 2008.
