26 July 2012 - 06:10 PMHi Y'all..
Another eventful day with the IA review WON.
Reviewer quashed ACCs decision (the Disentitlement of my IA) and Dr Rosie Fenwicks abstract abusive IA assessment.
Awarded costs and backdated IA, so Yippee again
I reccommend evryone uses a Lawyer at review.
Now Im just waiting for my weekly comp to eventually enter my bank account, and then the backdated amount of this.
And now my IA to be in the bank, and the backdated amount.
Wonder what punishment theyl try to dish out to me for this lates win - already at purgatory, so not sure whats left - a hitman maybe?
Costs awarded approx $2500.
24 July 2012 - 02:50 PMAustralian claims firm acquires NZ division
By Cameron Brown | 24/07/2012 12:03:00 AM | 0 comments
Australasia’s largest multi-disciplinary third party claims administrator has acquired the specialist injury management division of a New Zealand-based firm.
Gallagher Bassett (GB) has acquired Care Advantage, which provides injury claims management, case management, reporting and administration services for New Zealand employers accredited under the Accident Compensation Corporation's (ACC) accredited employer partnership (AEP) program.
The business now operates as Gallagher Bassett Care Advantage and services more than 40,000 New Zealand employees.
GB has provided off-shore claims administration services to the New Zealand Earthquake Commission for more than 10 years. It entered the ACC’s AEP program in 2009 after buying a small New Zealand injury case management provider.
“Care Advantage’s geographic spread, its established relationships with some of New Zealand’s largest employers, and proven record helping clients reduce injury rates, made it an attractive proposition for us,” said Jon Winsbury, GB’s managing director.
Winsbury said all Care Advantage clients had been advised and given the option to transition to GB management with their existing relationship managers’ support.
“It will be business as usual, as we do not plan to disrupt that great local service delivery, but we will overlay our global experience to offer employers new initiatives in the future."
GB’s Shayne Milsom will oversee the integration. “Shayne has a wealth of experience not only in personal injury and accident compensation but in project management and business transformation,” added Winsbury.

Disclaimer: Any resemblance to actual persons living or dead is intentional, and all statistics are absolute fact. However readers understanding of satire is assumed.
In breaking news today the National Government has responded enthusiastically to the Dr. Barbara Disley authored 18 month monitoring report on the ACC’s Sensitive Claims treatment pathway calling it “a triumph of policy over reason.”
New details revealed by the report show that in 2008, claims accepted and therefore the level of PTSD as a result of sexual abuse and assault was diagnosed by the ACC’s assessors was at a whooping 60%.
However since the National led Goverment’s change of direction at the ACC the percentage of claims accepted dropped dramatically to 40% in 2009; 13% in 2010; 3.5% in 2011 and thus far in 2012 just 3.6%.
“In my view, this shows that the ACC’s tougher stance is not just working but curing a very difficult to treat problem in our community” Prime Minister John Key stated. “I think that the removal of support and counselling is actually the curative factor here and that as a result the level of suffering caused by rape and sexual abuse has simply disappeared.”
These results are so encouraging that documents obtained under the Official Information Act show that the National Cabinet plan to implement the same approach to unemployment, addictions, mental health problems, child abuse, domestic violence, sexism and racism.
Paula Rebstock, chair of the Welfare Working Group and acting chair of the ACC responded: “Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind.”
