Whom is ultimately responsible?
The request was successful.
From: Gladys Webster
Dear Accident Compensation Corporation,
A distant family member had to make an ACC claim under an ACC covered and accepted Claim. The ACC process was traumatic to say the least. In the end the case owner (CM) follows the team leaders (TL) who follow the Branch Advisory Psychology (BAP's) recommendations who then advise the Technical Claims Manager (TCM) who run reviews at Fairway.
Reading your acc.co.nz website it would then seem that the CEO is next in line overseen by the ACC Board chair, Paula Rebstock.
If they wanted to lay a formal complaint about how their claim was managed, then ideally the responsibility lies with either the CEO or the Board Chair? Which one of these, the CEO or Board Chair, would be the appropriate place to begin??? (.....case owners being the last place to begin as they have no real decision making responsibility - it is a very hierarchal structure!!)
