(Concussion related) Complex Medical Panel and Reviews pertaining to Historical Arrears

Anthony Jordan 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). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Anthony Jordan

Dear Accident Compensation Corporation,

1/ Please name Concussion specialists used on Complex Medical Panels and why ACC consider these people qualified and specialized up to date in Concussion particularly in the long term effects of undiagnosed complications/consequences

2/ Will ACC provide an opportunity to have any Claimants specialists present at review in order to scrutinize and debate their history and potential outcomes with ACC appointed people

3/ Will ACC fund any such Claimants specialists present at review that has been involved in Claimants care

4/ What questions are usually asked at a Complex medical review where Concussions and Historical arrears claims are concerned

5/ Is there anything a Claimant can do in a Layman capacity to assist ACC to carry out review in a timely and orderly manner in order to get the full story on the table

6/ What format is typically proven more helpful, historically, to put forward evidence in order to be more successful in obtaining and proving a significant arrears entitlement

7/ In 1996/1997 was there a requirement whether by legislation, privacy act, or 'good courteous conduct', to invite the client to any meeting held by an ACC CM and their employer. Particularly where it was an issue of ongoing employment and ability/inability to work due to injury

Yours faithfully,

Anthony Jordan
