Access to services by non-binary people - Follow up

Anita Easton made this Official Information request to Accident Compensation Corporation

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Anita Easton to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Anita Easton

Dear Accident Compensation Corporation,

Thank you for your response to me request of 20 November 2018 (https://fyi.org.nz/request/9083-access-t...)

I would like to ask four follow up questions. One of these is a restatement of a question which was not answered in my original request; I would ask that you take that into account when you prioritise your response to this request

1) Is it possible for ACC to record a gender other than female or male in your claims and client management system(s)?

2) What guidance do you currently provide to staff on how to record the gender of non-binary people? This restates a portion of my initial 3b which was not completely answered.

3) Do you have any advice, legal opinion or other documentation supporting the view that insisting a non-binary person choose either female or male before they can receive cover is is not "gender-based discriminations in relation to either personal injury cover or entitlements"

4) Can you please provide documentation of the active engagement being undertaken with the Ministry of Health and Statistics New Zealand on this matter. Any proposed timeline for resolution would be particularly welcome.

Yours faithfully,

Anita Easton

which was not completely answered.

 

 3. Do you have any advice, legal opinion or other documentation
supporting the view that insisting a non-binary person choose either
female or male before they can receive cover is is not "gender-based
