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”.

Presumption bill would make comp-related opioid deaths compensable


New York lawmakers will consider a bill that would require employers and workers compensation insurers to cover opioid overdose deaths by presumption.

S.B. 4030, which was sent to a labor committee, states that an overdose death would be compensable if an injured worker was prescribed opioids as a result of his or her workplace injury.

The bill does not include language on rebuttals.
