  1. Is there a place to see if other people have successfully disputed an ime from a specific medical practitioner? I think it would help my case

  2. @Paula Pope. That is a frightening waste of money. I cant believe it doesn’t make national news and where’s the public outcry?

  3. VWA 2014 Annual Report shows the following total expenditures on ACCS, Medical Panels, and advice/assistance for injured workers going through this adversarial, biased rubbish:
    Certified payments to ACCS $15,515,000
    Contribution to DTF Consolidated Fund for use of Courts $7,916,000
    Medical Panels costs $3,813,000
    WorkCover Assist costs $1,999,000
    Union Assist costs $974,000
    Dispute resolution expenses $30,217,000

    Note there are no figures here for IME expenses. $30 million in dispute resolution! How far would that go if spent on meeting our genuine needs for rehabilitation, retraining and return to work.
