The latest outrage is ACC declining injury payouts using the flimsy excuse of degenerative causes, backed up by old retired quacks for hire, while Minister Smith claims his corporation is “making savings”.
The best medical opinion money can buy?
More a like a big rubber stamp labeled “Declined”.
American HMO’s have been declining claims according to performance figures as set by management, the injuries or illness don’t even figure in the consideration to decline.
No doubt NZ’s ACC has taken inspiration from this practice to make more money, or should I couch that in their terms ” reduce debt”.
I guarantee ACC is spending more on legal fees to defend law suits.
They are banking (pun) on people losing the will to fight them.
I hope the voters of Tasman decide to make savings next election and send this tosser the message that bullshit and lies don’t pay.
Problem is with true Blue National Electorates, you could put a pin stripe suit on a donkey and the morons would vote it in .. hee haw!
