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!

There is workplace injury, then there is assault by the workcover system

Another injured worker unjustly done over by workcover

“I feel that my story should be out there stating that I have been unjustly done by both the WorkCover Insurer and the Medical panel”, writes injured worker “R”. In essence “R” suffered a back injury and a hip injury, the latter discovered some months after the accident. The insurer accepted liability for both his back and hip injury, and even paid for “R”‘s first hip surgery. However the insurance company refused liability for further hip surgery, based on both an IME and a Medical Panel opinion who indicated his hip injury was not caused by his accident at work…Go figure!
