If there are more than 54 million Injured and Disabled American Workers and 8.9 million receive Social Security Disability…

What happens to the other 45.1 million?

MATH ILLITERACY AND WORKERS COMPENSATION AND SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION AND LONG TERM DISABILITY INSURANCE AND TAXPAYERS

NAIDW 54 million plus

 

With thanks to encouragement by the Investigative Reporting by ProPublica and NPR in the series, Insult to Injury, The Demolition of Workers Compensation,  A Committee of Federal Lawmakers, in their October 2015 letter to the Department of Labor summed things up:

Congress on WorkComp 10 2015 - WE BELIEVE 1

Congressional letter signers 10 2015 2

For example, in California, the unenforced and apparently unenforceable laws of Workers Compensation, provides 104 weeks of “TTD”  Temporary Total Disability Payments, which is to be supplemented by 52 weeks of State Disability, dispensed by the EDD – Employment Development Department.

 

If those systems fail, and they usually do except in first-aid minor injuries, Injured Workers can “apply” for Social Security Disability benefits, that they have paid into for years.

 

Injured Workers cannot expect reasonable treatment as the staff of the SSA apparently is not subject to any competency testing or guidelines.  While it can take up to 3-5 years for “Award” of SSDI benefits, it can take longer than that for their offices to do the math on retroactive benefits, monies received from Work Comp (calculated from different charts, by different parties) and from EDD.

 

Facts apparently mean nothing to SSA, and in fact, they initially allege that a Traumatic Brain Injury cannot prevent someone from returning to work as an executive sales person.   Their doctors are of the same ilk as many of the WorkComp doctors when it comes to current knowledge of medicine.  Would you say, “YOURE FIRED” to a clinical psychologist who advises the SSA that the injured party could be a ‘crossing guard’ with auditory, visual and cognitive impairments?

 

Long term disability carriers also seem to be part of the “Cahoots Gangs” and can threaten injured and disabled people with termination of benefits, outrageous demands for ‘reimbursement of overpayments’ based on swaths of Social Security outrageous misrepresentations of facts and gross inabilities to do simple math to calculate benefits.

LTD carriers can further threaten Injured and Disabled Americans, using the false evidence from the Social Security Administration, that is also falsely provided to the IRS in the form of inaccurate 1099’s (a common practice, so accountants advise).  The LTD carriers refuse to deal with facts, can further threaten and bully with litigation rather than reasonable discussion, and they can boast that “the Courts routinely find in their favor.”

WOULD THAT ALARM YOU?

NAIDW TBI AWARENESS

WorkCompLinda Twitter

Rather than correct their mistakes, the SSA can take years, commonly, to address the issues that profit insurance companies and agencies, but harm the injured and disabled.  HOW CAN THAT BE RIGHT?

HOW CAN THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION REFUSE A REQUEST VIA CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATION TO SIMPLY PROVIDE EVIDENCE OF THE INCOME UPON WHICH THEIR MISREPRESENTATIONS ARE BASED, ACTUAL INCOME ALLEGED VS. OBFUSCATIONS AND ASSUMPTION, IN STARK CONTRAST TO EVIDENCE PROVIDED ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS TO THE SSA?

The assumptions by SSA of overpayment, after an initial payment that required Treasury Department to intervene since SSA ‘inadvertently’ mis-routed the initial award money to a closed bank account, despite the fact that the injured worker had been forced to file for early-retirement money to fight total impoverishment.

thank you wynlinda's med legal activism

 

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE OTHER APPROXIMATELY 45.1 MILLION INJURED AND DISABLED AMERICANS WHO DON’T GET IMMEDIATE, REASONABLE AND APPROPRIATE MEDICAL CARE BECAUSE THEY ARE PART OF THE WORKCOMP SYSTEM, WHO CAN’T USE EMPLOYEE BENEFIT INSURANCE TO GET IMMEDIATE CARE SO HOPE FOR RETURN TO WORK IS DASHED UPON INJURY.

 

THEY DON’T OFTEN GET CONSISTENT OR LEGAL AMOUNTS OF TEMPORARY TOTAL DISABILITY PAYMENTS, SOCIAL SECURITY TAKES A FIGHT AND THEN WHEN MISCONDUCT BY THE ADMINISTRATION IS APPARENT, THEY SUGGEST HIRING AN ATTORNEY OR SEEK LEGAL AID TO CORRECT A SYSTEM FUNDED WITH FEDERAL FUNDS, INVOLVED IN SYSTEMATIC ABUSE OF INJURED WORKERS AND OTHER TAXPAYERS.

 

Congressional reps suggest legal aid, and SSA sends flyers suggesting taking it to Federal Court??!! D’oh!  ALL BECAUSE SOMEBODY DIDN’T DO THEIR JOB OR CAN’T DO BASIC MATH AT SSA?!!!

 

THERE IS NO PRETENSE OF VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION.

Perhaps the ongoing corruption investigations being employed by the DA’s and FBI offices will help.

 

IT’S TIME FOR A CIVIL RIGHTS COMMISSION TO INVESTIGATE ABUSES OF INJURED AND DISABLED WORKERS IN AMERICA.  ASK YOUR CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATIVES WHAT’S GOING ON.

David DePaolo Said:

“I go back and forth, obviously, about the relevance of workers’ compensation in today’s world. Sometimes I whine about systemic problems. Sometimes I praise what I believe to be a good value to society when all goes well.”

“Mostly though I believe that we don’t need to “fix” workers’ compensation. We just need to make what we have work properly by all of us doing our jobs to the best of our abilities; respecting the law, being accountable and punctual.”   DePaolo’s World:   Annmarie’s Dad

How do you get from here to there after WorkComp? Here’s an update on Passive Income Prep School…

Linda Ayres looking for The Magic!

‪#‎PassiveIncomePrepSchool‬

Thanks, Colleen Arneil!!! Day 1 steps were simple and powerful!

Step 1 — 10 points – I showed up live at 11 to the Passive Income Lounge; calendar marked to be there tomorrow, too.

Step 2 – 10 points – My eCourse topic is WorkComp Survival and Virtual Combat Skills

The Select Your Topic action was clarifying and confirming/personally validating.

The “Validate My Idea” exercise was real powerful, and had me smiling.

On UDEMY WorkComp had matches, but I did discover two courses

1) Introduction to Workers Compensation Surveillance by a private investigator [ a horrible and harsh reality of the practices of WorkComp in America, Canada, UK and Australia….]

2)VA Fully Developed Disability Claims – ‘incapacitation’ is the military equivalent of WorkComp… and it looks like a soldier developed that 6 section curriculum, with a very left-brain military organizational structure. I may have to study that! 😀

2) Amazon had 2,654 books on WorkComp; it had 6,330 books for Injured Workers (mostly written by attorneys, but a few that touched on Survival, written by other Injured Workers — most were written a few years ago, and some were had introductions by attorneys… none of those were sugar-coated. Most of the books seemed to be ‘industry propaganda’ but I even found one by a former WorkComp commissioner … spilling the beans on the atrocities…and offering some solutions.

That was a totally cool exercise. I also found my log in to your eCourse that I purchased how long ago?

I even posted a couple related thoughts on LinkedIn (they know me in the WorkComp community there; I am one of just a couple of Injured Worker BLOGGERS in the USA… I also want to do an eCourse on BEGINNING TO BLOG….so that Human Rights and Civil Rights activists can better harness the power of social media.

“WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW” is a little slogan/meme I have used for years… it fits. 😀

And below are images of how far I got so far in creating a course… I would welcome feedback on which is more inviting, considering that most Injured Workers in America are being seriously abused by a system that intends only harm, and many feel (and are!) quite dis-empowered.. and hope is a long forgotten emotion for too many.

See you tomorrow! Thank you! xoxoxox

DAY 2 – “What Makes you YOU?

#PassiveIncomePrepSchool

Thanks Colleen Arneil I love the structure here, too!

SUMMARY:
1) I am a Writer, Warrior, TBI WorkComp Survivor,
2) I am a Blogger– WorkComp and Nuclear Warnings
3) At times, sometimes surprising to me, I can swear in some of the most un-lady like manners….at some of the most influential people, if they happen to annoy.

Step 1 — 10 points – I showed up at FB live at 11 to the Passive Income Lounge; calendar marked to be there tomorrow, too.
Step 2 – 10 points – 3 Random nuggets about me… ‘owning who I am, flaunting it and sharing it…’

1. WorkComp is one of the ‘dirty little secrets’ that puts all of us risk. The#YouEconomy may changes that very soon! I slipped on ice at work and conked my head in 2012… and learned the meaning of “TBI – Traumatic Brain Injury.” I am a TBI Survivor and Warrior!
Neurologists all said, ‘EMBRACE THE NEW YOU” and this ‘new me’ was not as fast, smart and perky as the ol’ me. I said to one doctor, “Well, I don’t know who this new chick is, but if I am supposed to embrace her, I think they better plan to rehabilitate me — and train me to become a neuro-scientist!” He was not sure if I was kidding or not, so he invited me to an annual Brain Injury Conference that weekend, but warned me that it was primarily for military and medical professionals. THAT was the beginning of my real grasp of#Concussion.
[If you haven’t seen the movie, Concussion, get the dvd, and watch the back story and the documentary included, also. Dr. Omalu is quite the American Warrior — fought with the NFL — and survived, and changes are a ‘comin…PS If you have a friend or loved one with a #Concussion, try not to say mean stuff like, ‘you like fine, get over it!’ .]

2. I learned to remind attorneys and workers’ comp ‘doctors’ that I’m injured not stupid when I encountered some of their …. shenaningans and improprieties.
Without benefit of competent legal counsel, in less than 5 years, the ‘parties reached resolution, subject to confidentiality agreement.” and it is upon that ROCK I hope to empower other injured workers in America, Canada, UK and Australia, and beyond, how to fight a ‘rigged’ system and get out with your life. Some of my Injured and disabled friends have been fighting for their lives for more than 5, 10, 15, 20 and some even 30 years. It’s a horrible system of abuse and torture, and if one is not permanently and totally disabled going in, the risk is quite high for being so before ever escaping. One book, co-authored by an Injured Worker and an attorney, (discovered in yesterday’s PassiveIncomePrepSchool assignment had a more polite way to describe the improprieties that most all Injured Workers face. It said something like, “Trust your Mother, but cut the deck anyway.” Something relative to playing cards and protecting one’s self against cheaters.

” I BLOG, THEREFORE I AM A WORKCOMP SURVIVOR. BE ONE, TOO.” is one of my memes.
Another is, “Without a blog and a growing database, Injured Workers are Unarmed and Unprotected in the Global War on Workers.”
[LinkedIn influencers have found my …. transparency… simultaneously refreshing, alarming and intimidating…Some have revised their guidebooks based on my input..]

3. THANKS FOR PERMISSION TODAY TO BE TOTALLY AUTHENTIC, AND EVEN SWEAR LIKE A SALTY SAILOR!!!
Speech therapists and clinical psychs say “quit swearing” and that’s as helpful as saying “quit forgetting and stop being so damn confused and disorganized…” Expletives are not uncommon, for years, post brain injury. It is sometimes the least important of the impairments to address….. the brain does regulate Everything. POST-TBI …. my levels of decorum hardly exists! F**k!

Thanks again for all you do to make the world a better place, and make us laugh in the process!

Onward!

See y’all tomorrow!

DAY 3 – MISS THIS AND MAKE NO MONEY

#PassiveIncomePrepSchool Colleen Arneil

– Better late than not at all! 😀

Many of the books on Workers Compensation and or Injured Workers either had NO REVIEWS or happy-happy ones that appeared to be ‘solicited reviews’..

I will have to dig a little deeper… a theme for why people LOVED the books could be summed up with “SAVED MY LIFE.”

‘Crappy Reviews’ were more of a ‘surrender’ to the ‘snake pit’ of the ‘corruption….’

State-specific books confused some people, and others were annoyed that they purchased books not knowing they were State specific.

The exercise helps me see that my ‘niche’ is on target… I see no value in playing the ‘rigged legal game’ and my ebook and eCourse are aimed at helping injured workers (and their attorneys, if they have them) do whatever is necessary to ‘encourage’ all stakeholders coming together with impartial mediators and structured settlement teams.

DOJ can address the criminal activities and malfeasance… helping to FREE THE HOSTAGES seems to be a ‘higher calling.”

PS With all the talk in the lounge about buying courses, I just had to buy your CANAVA course today 😀 , and as I looked at the One on One Coaching I was very excited and then experienced some serious ‘sticker shock’ that moved into, “I can’t afford THAT. Kudos for Colleen! She’s worth that and much more! Hmmmmmmmmm….. I wonder if she ever does ‘small group’ coaching that could lead to more intense 1 on 1 coaching…” Then I saw the money course, and thought, hmmmmmmmmmmmmm….. and got my smile back. We’ll start with Canava and the Course Creation I already have… and we’ll see where this 7-day course leads… The clarity by Day 3 is pretty phenomenal, based on the course, lectures and group input! Wooo hooo!

You’re Awesome, and sooooo Smart, yes, we are lucky about your background!

Thanks! See you tomorrow at 11!

DAY 4 – THIS IS A GAMECHANGER

#PassiveIncomePrepSchool Colleen Arneil

Thanks Colleen! Great questions, tiny steps, powerful insights! Saying it out loud (or posting it) brings it into ‘manifestation’… 😀

~~~~~

STEP ONE: 10 POINTS – ATTEND FACEBOOK LIVE AT 11 “chatting about the mindset it takes to makethe passive income flow’

STEP TWO: 10 POINTS – Post and share “YOUR BIGGEST desire is. What are you hoping to make happen with your business? Where do you want to be in 6 months?”

~~~~~~~~

The topics of Workers Compensation Survival and Radiation Survival ‘light me up’ because the Rads are extinction level and the people need to know and because WorkComp is extermination level, and the people need to know — in order to take survival precautions….

I am hoping to create educational ‘products’ that can help me serve an ideal audience, and do so in a way that also helps me to create a revenue flow to serve fiercely, with top tech automation and beautiful, simple to follow and very organized personal development/self-help/Warrior programs…(sort of like how the Passive Income Queen conducts biz! ) 😀

Einstein reminds us that ‘Those who have the privilege to know have the DUTY to act.’ I know. I act.

By or before January 15, 2017, six months today, my “biggest desire’ is to to have a functional organization/business/program, consisting of, but not limited to:

1) One or more TEACHABLE eCourses in WorkComp Survival, and one or more eCourse in understanding & grasping the need to #DodgeTheRads, as it impacts health, & 3+ mainstream media article publications;
2) One or more eBooks on WorkComp Survival and #DodgeTheRads life extension practices with full on opt-in pages & all necessary tech pieces/systems for webinars, and growing database and global reach;
3) Continued blogging on related topics, such as Social Media, TBI and LOEF, helping others ‘connect the dots’ and take right action;
4) An affordable, brilliant, affordable team of experts working with me to produce the above referenced transformational materials/products and related ..and a database of more than 20,000 ‘interested’ parties and co-workers;
5) Social Media Movements of global proportions to provoke further conscious thought and positive transformations

BRAIN INJURY ADVOCACY GROUP

OR SOMETHING EVEN BETTER! 😀

“Kudos on the hard work. It’s so empowering to show this specific demographic about what IS possible still.”  – Collen Arneil

Here’s Day 2 of the #PassiveIncomePrepSchool – HOW TO STAND OUT FROM THE COMPETITION

This Week I am participating in the Passive Income Queen’s  free 7-day course – Passive Income Prep School, and I purchased her eCourse creation program months ago.

Colleen is using the new FB video real time chat, a downloadable workbook, and a private FB group…. real “Today” stuff.

The “auto pilot” focus is very important for me, because, well, recovering from a Traumatic Brain Injury can be much like flying an aircraft if the auto-pilot parachuted out at the first conk on the head impact, leaving the controls in a bit of disarray. The online live class is fun, and there’s time for a little socializing after the lecture.

Since in WorkComp ‘vocational rehabilitation’ is apparently non-existent in the USA, attorneys who allege to represent Injured Workers might begin to look into online resources to keep Injured Workers learning while on the regular ‘rest and wait and wait and wait and wait’ for medical care programs.

Injured Workers might be smart to be proactive and accept the gifts that are available from the millennials to learn more about how things are unfolding in the Internet Age. Injured Workers could possibly learn to blog by such efforts.

I thought some of you might enjoy/appreciate the STEPS from Day One and Day Two…. If possible, I’ll post all Seven Days Steps…  Day 2 was a little …. challenge in authenticity!

You can probably still join in, if it’s of interest.  We’re supposed to post in the group by the end of the day, and repeat process for all 7 days.

If not, return to Ask About Workers Comp Gravy Trains list of posts, and read some of the ones you may have missed.

Can the YouEconomy disrupt the atrocities of WorkComp, LTD and SSA Disability Buffoonery Muddled with Flummery?

When one thing doesn’t work, we do other stuff.

Injured Workers are so heavily infiltrated by industry peeps, and drug-crazed long-term victims of the industry spewing helpless and hopeless nonsense, Jonestown style, so the hope for the millions of Americans being destroyed by WorkCompsters and the related agencies and industries seems grim indeed.  Most are unable/unwilling to learn to blog and fight the known corruption to save their own lives.  Their ‘peers’ batter them into submission to remain quiet and hope for change.  It’s vicious, indeed.

Some of the ‘other stuff’ I am still looking into, on your behalf, is how to best create eCourses and get eBooks done.  As mentioned recently on LinkedIn, I found a compassionate editor to help take both the eCourses and eBooks forward, to the next steps.  I continue to study social media, to the best of my abilities, in my own efforts at ‘vocational rehabilitation.’

WHAT'S THE YOUECONOMY
https://www.linkedin.com/groups/6969074/6969074-6158839698501419012

The recent SUCCESS Magazine on the YouEconomy presents the most hope I’ve seen in the world of business in a while. I think the YouEconomy has the full potential to obliterate the entire WorkComp industries… Well, we can hope on that count!

>> You’re intrigued at the idea of creating passive income, and you want to know how it works

>> You recognize that being an entrepreneur is as much about MINDSET as it is strategy—one can’t be successful without the other.

>> You have or you’re thinking of starting an online business

What’s up with the Workers’ Comp National Discussion circus this week?  
What a propaganda machine!

‪#‎PassiveIncomePrepSchool‬

Thanks, Colleen Arneil!!! Day 1 steps were simple and powerful!

 

Step 1 — 10 points – I showed up live at 11 to the Passive Income Lounge; calendar marked to be there tomorrow, too.

Step 2 – 10 points – My eCourse topic is WorkComp Survival and Virtual Combat Skills

 

The Select Your Topic action was clarifying and confirming/personally validating.

 

The “Validate My Idea” exercise was real powerful, and had me smiling.

On UDEMY WorkComp had NO matches, but I did discover two courses:

1) Introduction to Workers Compensation Surveillance by a private investigator [ a horrible and harsh reality of the practices of WorkComp in America, Canada, UK and Australia….]

2) VA Fully Developed Disability Claims – ‘incapacitation’ is the military equivalent of WorkComp… and it looks like a soldier developed that 6 section curriculum, with a very left-brain military organizational structure. I may have to study that! 😀

2) Amazon had 2,654 books on WorkComp; it had 6,330 books for Injured Workers mostly written by attorneys, but a few that touched on Survival, written by other Injured Workers — most were written a few years ago, and some were had introductions by attorneys… none of those were sugar-coated. Most of the books seemed to be ‘industry propaganda’ but I even found one by a former WorkComp commissioner … spilling the beans on the atrocities…and offering some solutions.

That was a totally cool exercise. I also found my log in to your eCourse that I purchased how long ago?

I even posted a couple related thoughts on LinkedIn (they know me in the WorkComp community there; I am one of just a couple of Injured Worker BLOGGERS in the USA… I also want to do an eCourse on BEGINNING TO BLOG….so that Human Rights and Civil Rights activists can better harness the power of social media.

“WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW” is a little slogan/meme I have used for years… it fits. 😀

And below are images of how far I got so far in creating a course… I would welcome feedback on which is more inviting, considering that most Injured Workers in America are being seriously abused by a system that intends only harm, and many feel (and are!) quite dis-empowered.. and hope is a long forgotten emotion for too many.

See you tomorrow! Thank you! xoxoxox

STATS ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS 7 8 2016

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW THANK YOU

First they came for…

THE EMPTY SUITS

First they came for the Injured Workers, and I did not speak out–

Because I was not an Injured Worker.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out —

Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the ‘Boomers,’ and I did not speak out–

Because I was not a ‘Boomer.’

Then they came for the Insurance Brokers, and I did not speak out–

Because I was not an Insurance Broker.

Then they came for the Attorneys for the Injured Workers, and I did not speak out–

Because I was not an Attorney.

Then they came for the Judges, and I did not speak out–

Because I was not a Judge.

Then they came for the Politicians, and I did not speak out–

Because I was not a Politician.

Then they came for the Bloggers, and I did not speak out —

Because I was not a Blogger.

Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me.

If you have been watching the ‘Abbott and Costello’ version of the

Workers Compensation National Discussion ala Abbott and Costello - Comedic duo

Workers’ Compensation National Discussions, you will better understand.  

Spin Doctors!

WC SHELL GAME TIMES HOW MANY INJURED WORKERS

The “National Discussions” launched in May with diatribes against America’s Injured Workers, selecting a few to disparage viciously and incessantly on and off social media.

Yes, we were warned.   Let’s see what they collectively come up with in … August…. to spin for ‘improved perceptions’ of the industry and it’s killing machines and bots?

Remember Remember:  ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY?

Broker Schmoker Rebuttal

The Ignorant Aging

Are The Calderons Enough?

This Could Be Huge

Polarization to Hypocrisy

Work Comp and Baseball

Remember the industry rants disparaging America’s Injured Workers in favor of a (potential?) business associates from down under? Follow the money.  Follow their blogs.

“This morning finds me firmly ensconced in a top secret “undisclosed location”, preparing to attend the 2016 Workers’ Compensation Summit – the result of an earlier call for a national conversation on workers’ comp. When I first published the article…..”

Can SEX EDUCATION Solve the Crises of Hyper-Corruption related to Workers Compensation?

“We go on and on and on about “costs” of this, that and the other thing.”

“Nobody talks about the costs that we create by our own stupidity, or selfishness – whichever is applicable in this instance.”      – DePaolo

something is terribly wrong with workers compensation isn't it

How do we, as a community, show the world that workers’ compensation can and does commit heinous crimes against injured workers and other taxpayers, as offensive as the War Crimes of Nazi Germany?

America’s workers compensation system includes butcher doctors and leased/owned doctors on direct referral in the “MPN” networks to maim and torture workers, directly or by false reports and or denials of medical care, by those with medical licenses that do not honor the oath to DO NO HARM.  Swaths of pockets of businesses see and use injured workers as their cash cows, and openly boast about it, in their mega billion dollar industries.

The spokes people for the industry attempt to find some little things they may do right, and poke fun at the disabled community members, even knowing that their industry ‘creates disabilities.’   Some of their mouthpieces call law enforcement demands by law abiding citizens ‘vociferous militancy’ and said-mouth-pieces continuously refuse to assume responsibility for the heinous actions for profits perpetuated by their industry.

Continued cover ups of the crimes ensures continued crimes.  NOTHING CHANGES WHEN NOTHING CHANGES.   INJURED WORKERS ARE NO LONGER SILENT.

Injured Workers – WHY NOT JUST PETITION? WHY BLOG? Workers Compensation National Discussion – Nearly 6,000 USA UPDATES

Did YOU read the petition with nearly 6,000 of Injured Workers across America?  It has not yet made it to the “Workers Compensation National Discussions”…  maybe by August, it will?

How should we respond collectively against propaganda spin press and encourage legitimate media relations? What will satisfy the victims as to the no-benefits, no decent medical care, cost-shifting and life destroying PROFITS BEFORE LIVES business models provided under any workers’ compensation system?”

IS IT REALLY LIKE SEX EDUCATION OF TEENAGERS? REALLY?

Injured Workers   Mediation for negotiations and structured settlements

IN LIEU OF LAW ENFORCEMENT, IS A BAG OF GROCERIES AND A MONTH’S WORTH OF UTILITIES SUFFICIENT FOR SCOFFING AT CIVIL RIGHTS AND HUMAN RIGHTS IN AMERICA, IN CANADA, IN THE UK, IN AUSTRALIA, IN INDIA, AND ANYWHERE PEOPLE WORK?

SOMETHING IS TERRIBLY WRONG WITH WORKER’S COMPENSATION, ISN’T IT?

are you kidding me - national workers compensation discussion

“HOW DARE YOU” Are you F’ing Kidding Me?!?”

“Why on earth was this injured worker jerked around like that? What is the problem with IMMEDIATELY authorizing treatment that a non-work comp doctor poignantly prescribed? Why does it take so long to get “authorization” and why is authorization needed in the first place?”

“Complete and utter BS.”

http://daviddepaolo.blogspot.com/2015/09/how-dare-you.html

“We should also be castigating those that engage in this kind of nonsense.”

“How about a little dignity? How about treating a PERSON like a PERSON? How about getting rid of these stupid, asinine rules that get in the way of good claims (heck – people) management?”

“How about DOING THE RIGHT THING?!”

 

“Workers’ compensation has come under the public eye in a very negative way with: Michael Grabell’s ProPublica series highlighting the great disparity in benefits between states; OSHA’s report summarizing various studies about inequities in work comp and how benefits have been decimated, let alone failed to keep up with inflation; and other national media stories about inequities suffered by injured workers published by the Los Angeles Times, Texas Tribune, Boston Globe, NY Times, and others. The industry reacted defensively, further exacerbating this negative image. And the industry can’t escape the numerous blog posts by injured workers soured on the treatment they have experienced under the workers’ compensation system. Yet, there really are success stories and other vignettes and tales where workers’ compensation did work, where people did recover and were provided all that the law allows, and more. So how does the industry put its best foot forward? How do we, as a community, show the world that workers’ compensation can do, and does, good things? How should we respond collectively against negative press and encourage positive media relations? What will satisfy the critics as to the no-fault benefits provided under any workers’ compensation system?” – DePaolo’s World

“We should also be castigating those that engage in this kind of nonsense.”

“How about a little dignity? How about treating a PERSON like a PERSON? How about getting rid of these stupid, asinine rules that get in the way of good claims (heck – people) management?”

SEX EDUCATION?  REALLY… ?

  1. What else? Oh dear, it appears that more of the real issues of WorkCompsterisms are being revealed.

 

What would Dr. Freud or Dr. Bruce Leckart have to say about these further quotes:

 

 “….And we shouldn’t sugar coat the workers’ compensation story either.” “When my son began adolescence, I literally hit him in the head with a box of condoms and told him my two golden rules: don’t be a dumb arse, and beware the power of female genitalia (I used more profane adjectives…).”

 “That lesson was reinforced from time to time with similar provocative, yet effective, communications….”

Linda Ayres

But wait! There’s more!

 “…We can start with the various organizations that communicate regularly with at risk demographics, like AARP.”

 “Hit them in the head with the proverbial box of condoms…”

Too much time in the rads? Yikes… People are being butchered and abused and impoverished by WorkComp nationally, and the industry spokes peeps seem to think it is a joking matter… hmmmmm 

Will Michael Michael Grabell and Howard Berkes do an encore to the 2015 INSULT TO INJURY and expose more on the improprieties that continue thru SSA and SSDI… 
Is anybody else seeing the patterns unfolding? Read a little more on POST-WORK-COMP SURVIVAL and the Battlefields of #SocialSecurity in the most recent blog on
