Request for confirmation as to when I will receive ACC's REV 18 for my application for review for claim number 10029250341

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). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: David Lawson

Dear Accident Compensation Corporation,

I refer to my 2 emails (Part 1 and Part 2) copied to Government Services following up my initial application for review under claim number 10029250341 lodged with [email address] initially on 13 August 2017, and then corrected and amended by email on the 15th August 2017, for which over 21 working days later I have yet to receive the initial acc formal review documentation (REV18) acknowledging ACC's receipt of receiving my review application under claim number 10029250341.

ACC Policy dictates that the acc review application team has a period of 3 working days to confirm receipt of a claimants formal application for review.

I am therefore seeking under urgency within the next 24 hours ACC's clarification as to why I did not receive formal REV18 documentation by no later than the 17 August 2017 acknowledging that ACC's review team had received my review application under claim number 10029250341, along with an explanation as to why over 21 working days later I still have not received the associated REV18.

I have asked the ACC Review application team to courier to me the appropriate REV18 documentation to my home address within the next 48 hours in response to my application for review under claim number 10029250341.

I have requested urgency in this matter because my application for review relates to ACC's breaches under sections 58 (1) and 58 (2) (a), (b) and (c ) of the ACC Act, with respect to ACC withholding deemed class of injury cover notification's statutorily due to me on 20 August 2016, some 388 days ago, of which 265 days of those have been working days.

This has meant that I have been unable to seek neurosurgical assessment of my unhealed injuries to date.

I look forward to receiving back your confirmation that the associated REV18 Documentation will be couriered to me and received at my home address within the next 48 hours.

I confirm that 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.

Yours faithfully,
David Lawson
