Royal Commission to Investigate Insurance Scandals
According to the 4 Corners story ‘Money for Nothing’, medical evidence disappeared from the bank’s insurance files and deplorable tactics were then employed by some in the medical profession and insurance industry against policyholders.
Victims of Independent Medical Examiners retained by the insurance industry are invited to file a submission with the Royal Commission for round 6.
Victims are also invited to ask the Royal Commission to obtain the files of the Victorian Worksafe Authority’s review of purported independent medical examiners. The review was prompted by the Victorian Ombudsman’s findings over November 2015 to September 2016 about an extraordinary percentage of medical practitioners who purported to be independent.
Victims are also invited to ask the Royal Commission to obtain the Victorian Ombudsman’s files which found that an unacceptably high percentage of so-called independent medical examiners would ignore overwhelming evidence and would insert a few lines for the unscrupulous lawyers and insurers to cherry pick out for their own ends.
If you held loss of income insurance, business interruption insurance, fire or flood insurance or any other insurance products that failed to meet community expectations or were handled in ways you regard as unethical, please file your submissions at the Financial Services Royal Commission website as soon as possible.
You are also invited to ask the Royal Commission to subpoena all disclosures by banks to corporate insurers of bank directors and officers. Are bank executives insured if they forget to tell the insurer all about their dealings?
