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”.

NCCI requests 7.1% increase in Connecticut's advisory workers compensation rates


NCCI Holdings Inc. has requested a 7.1% increase in Connecticut's advisory workers compensation rates for 2013, due largely to indemnity and medical costs that are "increasing faster than wages" in the state.

Boca Raton, Fla.-based NCCI said Connecticut saw a 6.4% increase in lost-time workers comp claims in 2010 after 12 straight years of declining frequency, according to a presentation by the ratings and research bureau on Thursday. Meanwhile, NCCI said indemnity claim severity increased by 12.4% in Connecticut for 2010, while medical claim severity increased 8.8% that year.

Connecticut insurers reported combined ratios of 130% in 2011, NCCI said in its presentation.

NCCI's rate filing would take effect Jan. 1 if approved by the Connecticut Insurance Department.
