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”.

Lawmakers seek comp coverage for first responders with ‘psych conditions’


Ohio lawmakers Wednesday introduced a bill that would help first responders suffering from “psych conditions.”

H.B. 559 applies to “peace officers, firefighters, and emergency medical workers diagnosed with psychiatric conditions arising from employment without an accompanying physical injury.”

Under current law such workers are able to claim workers compensation for psychiatric conditions only if a physical injury is present.
