RE: Health Benefit Plans and Medical Costs Internal Checklist for the Review of Compromise Settlement Agreements per N.C.G.S. §97-17 (Amended 6/15/01)

Please click on the link below for the Industrial Commission’s internal guidelines for reviewing compromise settlement agreements for compliance with newly amended N.C.G.S. §97-17. Also see newly created N.C.G.S. §97-90.1.

I hope this will be helpful information when preparing compromise settlement agreements and forwarding them to the Industrial Commission for approval.
