My partner has recently seen Dr Gil Newburn. We asked our GP to refer us and we only ($100) had to pay a part payment and ACC paid the rest. What I am interested in, if this dr is not a 'preferred specialist' of ACC, why do they pay for part of the consultation? And because they pay for some of the consult, why in turn won't they accept any reports Dr Gil Newburn writes? How can I get ACC to acknowledge and accept his professional views?

Acc do not have to accept any report, Sometimes they don't even follow court rulings, if Dr Newburn is not one of their TOADIES, he is likely to be not giving them what they want.

You will have to file for a review, this is how they play the game.

Also, I have had many specialists reports done over the years, and ACC have paid the total cost, I have never contributed anything.

I had one report done by a non toady, and they paid all the cost, $3.200.00. and then totally disregarded it.

I know people with head injury swear by Dr Newburn and his reports. Once you get as far as District Court the Judge will soon look at it and take it into consideration. So if ACC are not accepting the report, where to from there, did they say
