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”.

The suspensions are in line with Assembly Bill 1244, which went into effect January 1 and now requires the division’s administrative director to suspend any medical provider, physician or practitioner from participating in the workers comp system in cases that involve criminal activity, among other requirements.
California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill into law on Tuesday that will require that medical providers who have been convicted of fraud are suspended.
