Hi all,

Would it be at all possible for someone to upload a copy of the IRP blank document so I can write one up for myself please.
Of course the one written up by the cm is nonsense.

cm thinks to modify my IRP by changing stuff already written into it by a previous cm.(to suit her purpose to with hold entitlements to treatment) I am sure that type of interpretation stands outside of the meaning of modifying the IRP
document.

Lori.

If you make the IRP in conjunction with you main medical providers and get them to sign it. As it says in the act, you have a good case to take to review. Just blank out att the writing on a form you have and photo copy it. Use several sheets of copy paper cut to size.

From the Social Rehabs Assessors guide I quote:

"Note you should not give the claimant a copy of your report, this is the responsibility of ACC."

This is ACC's directive to Assessors, this is why they refuse to give out copies of reports to you before they are presented to Acc. They are being paid and directed to do so.

Under the Privacy Act no information produced by an assessor should get into the hands of the ACC until it has been read by the person it is about and checked for accuracy. If there is a dispute it should be nipped in the bud rather than allowing the ACC to make a decision based on wrong information then to fight it out and a review hearing, district court etc.

If the assessor produces wrong or misleading information or unsuitable report the argument those with the assessor and not the ACC. The ACC will claim, and the reviewer will agree, that there may rely upon a qualified assessors report regardless of what you may say about it. Your only recourse at this stage is to obtain a superior report and there are no doctors, vocational assessors or assessors of other types in New Zealand that promote themselves as medicolegal experts that are willing to go up against the ACC machinery. All such independent assessors have been rendered extinct by the ACC over the yearsforth do not

Provide the assessor with a written instruction that under the privacy act they may not pass the report on to the ACC or any third party until you have received a draft copy and have provided written approval for the reports delivery.

It is not legally permissible for either the ACC or the assessor to complain about this legal mechanism to protect the integrity of our information. The only thing you will need to be careful of is that you don't create any unreasonable delay.

It is better to have a showdown with the ACC with a suspension of entitlement rather than the assessment procedures to run their full course relying upon wrong information.

This is all about INFORMED CONSENT so as to protect our rights, privacy and treatment processes.

Why does ACC update an IRP just weeks after a previous one, without notice to the claimant to comment or get advice? A lady today only got 1.5 hours to sign the IRP emailed to her. Well she didn't see the email in time so couldn't have agreed any way. How fair is that?

Firstly, by virtue of s.76 (4) ACC is liable to provide the services identified in an agreed IRP - have your signed and agreed to your IRP????

Secondly, by virtue of s.78 an IRP must be updated from time to time to reflect the outcome of assessments done and progress made under the plan.

Thirdly, by virtue of Schedule 1 Clause 10 both you and ACC may agree to modify an IRP from time to time.

Fourthly, by virtue of s.77 (3) ACC must assess a claimants social and vocational rehabilitation needs when preparing an IRP.

Generally, ACC is failing on all counts.

Fifthly, buy yourself a copy of the Act from reputable bookshops like Bennett's etc.

Rosey I suggest the claimant slap a Review on the case manager who did this as it breaks the code and is harassment. Then send in a complaint to the OCI under the claimants code regarding a timely manner, communication and being treated with the highest possible standard of service. Scott Pickering also likes to know about these service standard breaches so send him a strongly worded letter at [email protected] No one will accept that 1.5 hours is a timely manner for an IRP to be signed as they are a consultative and living document. Usually you have 14 days from memory to get input from treatment providers and have it returned. We have to keep testing these things and holding ACC to account. Do not let actions like these pass, or they will do it to the next person ......this is appalling treatment!
