Xchanging case manager: at best terrible, at worst bunch of bullies

Yesterday we received the shameful story of “Severely Injured” who, rightly, describes his Xchanging case manager as a crazy ex-girlfriend who went from my ‘new best friend’ to nothing short of a stalker. She
would ring the injured worker up to 8 times a day, and berate him, scream abuse, make outrageous claims – “I am stopping your payments, its up to me, and you are getting nothing, which is what you deserve”…Sound familiar? You bet! And here is what you can do about it!

Holy Schmoly- our site was hacked

As you may have gathered, our site was hacked last month and malware was found. The trouble started shortly after we received an email from a -clearly- very disgruntled IME, referring to his multiple negative reviews on our site’s “rate an IME / IME List“, and stating that we caused upset in those injured workers who were due for an IME assessment with this man. He demanded an apology and requested we delete the reviews pronto…or else… Coincidence? Maybe…

Allianz whistle blower spills the beans

arronOh my, we are truly privileged to have received an anonymous bean spilling by a former Allianz TMF (NSW) employee!

From bonus payouts to the teams who achieve the lowest costs and highest claim declinatures (=rejections), to skewed ‘stats’, to… demanding sexual explicit deeds!

The Judge in this case directed that the independent medical examiner (IME Dr Casikar) AND the workcover insurer (Allianz) both be investigated for their disgraceful and seriously alarming [mis]conduct!

The truth, the whole truth & nothing but lies

The following extremely distressing story, submitted by Maggie J highlights that the workcover system is so corrupt, so negligent it wakens you to a side of being human that is more ugly than working with sex offenders and child abusers, it is the legal discrimination of vulnerable people, … It is where workcover insurers are the obstacles, they take on the role of the perpetrators, where the insurer manipulates, abuses, intimidates & threatens

Workcover surveillance – running online searches is standard practice

WorkCover insurances and their hired fraud or private investigators are spying on injured workers’ social media in increasing numbers. Intensive surveillance of Facebook postings, tweets, YouTube videos, photo sharing sites etc. are all being used in an attempt to untangle “a web of lies” and discredit any injured worker. In fact it is now standard practice for them to run computer searches and investigations to obtain information about your personal life.

Workcover insurers – sometimes their actions are beyond ridiculous

Does the workcover insurance company care about injured workers? Does your workcover case manager care about you? Most are just big mean ogres that wants to do everything they can to screw you over, and, as you’ll see, some times (read: often) their actions are so ridiculous, you have to wonder if they are really run by humans!
