The employer or carrier may not be required to pay the doctor's fees if, for example, you fail to file a claim for workers' compensation, or fail to notify your employer of your injury or illness, or fail to attend a Board hearing if your employer challenges your right to benefits. Even if you make all required efforts to prosecute your claim, the Workers' Compensation Board may still find that you are not entitled to benefits. In such cases, this notice advises your health provider that you acknowledge your personal liability for payment of his/her bills. Workers' Compensation Law Section 32 The A-9 notice also covers instances in which a claimant with an existing valid workers' compensation case comes to an agreement with his/her employer or its insurance carrier settling his/her case in accordance with Section 32 of the Workers' Compensation Law.

Your health care provider may ask you to sign this A-9 notice to insure that you acknowledge your personal liability for payment of his/her bills if you have waived your right to future medical benefits under a Section 32 agreement.
