No opt out payment isn't in fact an insurance plan controlled by the law; it's a non-regulated. So each employee getting it would have to individually negotiate that for him or herself. Some union's negotiate this for all their employees, but unless you are in a union that does this, you don't have an inherent right to an opt out payment.
