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”.

A.B. 1465 would create the California Medical Provider Network, establishing a choice that an employee may choose to treat within their employer’s network or the new network.


The bill would require that the providers in the state system “be sufficient to enable treatment for a variety of injuries in all parts of the state” and “would specify criteria physicians must meet to be included” in the state network.


The bill would require the administrative director to establish rules and procedures for the state network and create and adopt a continuity of care policy.
