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”.

Louisiana comp rates to decrease 12% in 2023

rates fall

Louisiana workers compensation rates will see a 12.2% reduction in 2023, Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon announced on Wednesday.

The decrease, set to take effect on May 1, 2023, continues a downward trend the state has seen for nine out of the past 10 years.

Mr. Donelon said in a statement that Louisiana’s workers comp market is “thriving,” and that a dramatic reduction in rates during the past two decades is great news for employers across the state.

The state has seen a combined decrease in workers comp rates of 35% during the past five years, 47% during the past 10 years, and 63% during the past 20 years.

Louisiana’s total workers comp insurance market this year was estimated to have about $850 million in written premium, according to the Louisiana Department of Insurance.
