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”.

Kansas to consider PTSD benefits for first responders


A bill that would permit first responders to file workers compensation claims for post-traumatic stress disorder was filed in the Kansas Senate on Monday.  

S.B. 165 would make amendments to current law, adding post-traumatic stress disorder to that which qualifies as an injury for first responders.

The bill defines a first responder as a firefighter, an enforcement officer, an emergency medical service provider, all “whether paid or serving as a duly authorized volunteer.”

The bill was sent to committee.
