Section 32 Waiver Agreements is an agreement negotiated between the aggrieved worker and the insurance agency to pay for medical benefits and/or benefits in the event of a claim. A waiver agreement terminates the right of an aggrieved worker to receive permanent and future benefits in exchange for a lump sum payment or pension. If agreed and approved by the Board of Directors, all that is charged (compensation and/or medical benefits) will be closed forever. The insurance agency is no longer responsible for this part of the debt and cannot be reopened. When compensation is paid, no further payment is made in the event of a loss of wages.
In the case of health care, the insurance agency no longer pays for medical care. A waiver agreement is not binding unless it is approved by the Workers` Compensation Board.
