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”.

WCIRB to amend rate filing to account for COVID-19 claims


The California Workers Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau voted Wednesday to amend its Jan. 1, 2021, pure premium rate filing to reflect updated information on COVID-19 claims, the ratings agency announced in a statement.

Oakland, California-based WCIRB’s governing committee did not amend the overall pure premium rate of $1.56 per $100 of payroll that was submitted to the state’s insurance commissioner in late August, but did modify the early recommendation of $0.06 per $100 of payroll on COVID-19 claim frequency to a range of $0.01 per $100 of payroll for the information sector to $0.24 per $100 of payroll for segments of the health care and social assistance industry sector.

The California Department of Insurance will hold a public hearing Oct. 5 to consider the rate filing.
