Definitions for "Waivers"
Process used in some Fantasy Football leagues to make all free agents equally available to every team. Waivers generally work like this: when a player is dropped from one team, he does not immediately become available. Instead, the player is placed on waivers for a set amount of days. The team with the highest waiver order who puts in a claim for that player will have the chance to add him to their roster.
Official document signed by all attendees at SCA events, indicating that they understand the risks inherent in the activity and agree not to sue if those risks result in injury to themselves or their property. For equestrian activities, you must have waivers for both attending the event, and a separate waiver for participating in equestrian activities. Waivers can be individual waivers (one per person) or roster waivers (a single sheet that multiple people sign.)
Once a player is out of options, he will have to "clear waivers" in order to be sent to the minor leagues. A player will clear waivers if he has not been claimed by another team after three business days following the date waivers were requested. Once a player has cleared waivers, he can be sent to the minors, released, or traded. There are two types of waivers, revocable and irrevocable. If a player placed on revocable waivers is claimed by another team, the team requesting waivers may withdraw the waiver request. If the club doesn't withdraw the waiver request, the player's contract is assigned to the claiming team. If more than one team in the same league makes claims, the team which is lower in the standings gets the player. If teams in both leagues claim the player, the player will always go to the team in the same league as the club requesting waivers.
Medicaid programs that offer home and community-based services for persons who would otherwise be eligible for institutional care. These programs require special permission from the federal government because they are not an "entitlement" like other Medicaid services, because they expand the eligibility criteria, and because they offer different services than allowed under state plan Medicaid.
