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 files 4.5% workers comp rate decrease for Illinois

NCCI files 4.5% workers comp rate decrease for Illinois

The National Council on Compensation Insurance Inc. is seeking to decrease Illinois workers compensation rates by 4.5% for policies incepting on Jan. 1, 2014, the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission announced Tuesday.

But in Illinois, insurers setting their prices are free to decide whether to adhere to such rate changes, which the state describes as “voluntary advisory insurance rates.”

The new rate filing follows a recommended 3.8% decrease in Illinois for 2013.

The decreases follow from workers comp reforms adopted in 2011, the IWCC said in a statement.
