Request for copies of the treatment injury claims information between 2005 and 2015.

David Lawson made this Official Information request to Accident Compensation Corporation

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Accident Compensation Corporation should have responded by now (details and exceptions). The requester can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: David Lawson

Dear Accident Compensation Corporation,

I refer you to ACC's response dated 9 May 2016 to Colleen Morgan's FYI request [email address] which can be found at

I refer you to page 3 of ACC's response dated 9 May 2016, and specifically to the treatment injury information regarding the number of accepted, declined and combined total of acupuncture treatment injury claim cover decisions which totaled 31, of which 28 have been declined, leaving 3 cases in the past 10 years as having been accepted by ACC as a treatment injury for cover under the Act.

I am writing to request pursuant to the Official Information Act 1982, that ACC Government Services provide the following information to me redacted only for the personal names and any unique identifiers within the Official Information that I have requested;

1) Copies of the original treatment injury claims forms submitted by the 3 claimant's that have had their treatment injury claims accepted in the past 10 years,

2) full copies of any internal, and or external medical/surgical opinion reports and or diagnostic imaging/reports that was relied upon for ACC to have been able to have accepted the 3 claims noted under treatment injury between 2005 and 2015.

3) copies of any and all ACC internal assessment reports and approval of these three claims.

Under s16(2) of the Official Information Act, my preferred way of receiving a response is by email to the address from which ACC received the original request, not by post.

Thank you for your time and assistance.

Yours faithfully,

David Lawson
