WorkCover Case Manager List

Many injured workers have been looking and asking (us) for a list of workcover case manager (s) – the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Workcover case managers come in many different shapes, sizes and – especially- characters. They can be young and extremely inexperienced, lacking communication and basic people skills; ,  many are in their forties, divorced and utterly miserable sourpusses, some are male, most are female, some have years of experience and have undoubtedly gone through a “work hardening programme”,  some are fresh off the street and so inexperienced and non-educated in the law and in medical terminology it’s frightening, many are, yes, lazy and incompetent,  a  very few are decent.

You can read heaps more about those bizarre but powerful creatures here :all articles related to case managers. For example: workcover case managers: the good, the bad and the ugly and Workcover Case Managers can over-rule advised from our best medical specialists. WorkCover Case Manager: national standards of practice – must read and must keep.

Please note: NOT  ALL workcover case managers are ‘evil’. In fact there are some (but few) extremely ethical, honest, impartial and compassionate CMs around.

Also, when you suffer a relatively minor injury such as a broken leg which will heal in a cast within 6 weeks, chances are that you will be treated ‘well’ by your allocated workcover case manager. The ‘problems’ will start when you either not healing as per some obscure guideline, either if you have suffered a moderate to severe injury at work.

Case managers are (generally) NOT your friend. They are employed by workcover insurance companies to do one thing and that is to save as much money as possible by denying our minimising your entitlements. These creatures are offered highly rewarding incentives (such as monetary bonus) for denying and minimising claims, and for forcing you to return to work yesterday.

  1. What is a “tail Claim” in Vic? Thnx

  2. No suprises Allianz leading the stakes. I note the article states: “these creatures are offered highly rewarding incentives (such as monetary bonus) for denying and minimising claims”. Is there any evidence of that anywhere or by anyone? Like a copy of an employment contract or bonus goals or an ex-employee prepared to speak out? We could do a lot about how things are if we could prove this point. Pleeeease let us know. Thnx for the great new section. I think it will fill up fast.

  3. Do you have a list for QBE

  4. Thank You For Corrupt case manager !! Good Ol Allianz
    In The Lead ….No Surprises There !!
