Injection Harm: How to File an ACC Claim

Updated: Dec 30, 2022

(Updated December 2012)

Important: this is an essay by Gary Moller, reflecting upon what he has observed in the Clinic. I do not and can not diagnose health problems or give treatment recommendations. The intention here is to help guide nutrition and lifestyle to support medical treatment: consult your doctor).

"Hi, Gary, a friend of mine has had a serious adverse reaction to the jab (heart-related). Can she apply for help through ACC, and if so, how would she go about it? Thanks for your help!"

 

Gary:

Thank you for asking. Yes, your friend must apply for ACC assistance to cover her treatment costs, loss of wages, business assistance, assistance with return to work, and possible lump sum payment, but be prepared for a bit of a battle. Unsubstantiated rumours are circulating that some families have received as much as $120,000 as compensation for vaccine injuries. Still, it is alleged that these come with a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) that forbids any mention of the details. I know of one case, but unfortunately, the alleged recipients have fallen silent, so I cannot comment further.


But here's the thing: ACC is a no-fault scheme to provide treatment, rehabilitation and compensation for accident victims, regardless of fault, including those allegedly or possibly harmed by an experimental drug that was incompletely safety tested and then mandated upon innocent and well-intentioned people. Whether or not a person has complicating comorbidities, such as diabetes or heart disease, the perfect storm principle that leads to a health catastrophe means the benefit of the doubt must fall in favour of the patient. This is especially so when it is an experimental drug that people were coerced into taking.



Why bother to apply for ACC coverage for a vaccine injury?


Injuries can include death, paralysis and heart damage. Other injuries may include miscarriage, stillbirth, and wildfire diseases, where previously benign conditions such as cancer and Parkinson's burst into flames and engulf the victim at a frightening rate.


If an ACC claim is accepted, a Case Manager will be assigned, and a Case Management Plan will be devised with the input of the patient, their family and medical staff to ensure the patient receives the best care. This care may include replacement of lost income, assistance with personal and home care, professional treatment and rehabilitation services, and transport to such services. A lump sum payment may also be forthcoming.


While it may seem a long shot to blame the mRNA shot for many cases, never overlook the idea that the perfect storm is at play for most injuries other than sudden trauma, such as being run over by a bus. Further, it is not for you or your doctor to determine the validity of a claim: That is up to ACC. However, ACC is sure to decline the claim initially, but knowing this, you are preparing to take the claim to appeal, and you will win at the appeal.



How to apply for ACC


Apply with the assistance of your lawyer, GP and specialist.


ACC, my old employer, has this to say:

"We can provide treatment and support for injuries caused by COVID-19 vaccination if it meets the criteria for a treatment injury. This means there's a physical injury caused by the vaccination, which's not a necessary part or ordinary consequence of the treatment.

For example, inflammation around the site of the injection is common with a COVID-19 vaccination. It's an ordinary consequence and we're unlikely to cover it. Infections due to the vaccination, such as cellulitis or septic arthritis, and anaphylaxis resulting in injury aren't ordinary consequences and we're likely to cover it.

To make a treatment injury claim for a patient, you need to complete an ACC2152 treatment injury claim form and an electronic or manual ACC45 injury claim form.

To help with our reporting, we need to know the COVID-19 vaccine brand name and vaccination dose number (ie dose one or two). You can note this on:

  • the ACC45: Tick the treatment injury box. Identify this as an adverse event in the drop-down menu. Then enter the COVID-19 vaccine brand name and vaccination dose number in the open comments section

  • the ACC2152: In Section 3 - Treatment claimed to have caused the injury.

File a report with CARM before doing anything else


Follow the instructions here: https://www.garymoller.com/post/how-to-report-an-adverse-reaction-or-problem-with-a-medicine-or-medical-procedure

This is an essential sheet to have within the paper trail.


Keep a paper trail


Ensure everything is in writing. If necessary, follow up a meeting by sending the other parties a diary note confirming what was discussed and agreed to, even if it was a telephone conversation. Record meetings and conversations and take a support person with you who is charged with taking notes on your behalf.



Get a diagnosis before lodging your application!


I've seen many cases of heart damage following the jab. Sometimes, the doctor whispered words like "myocarditis", followed by, "but you did not hear that from me, and I'll deny I ever said this". In addition, there may be no mention of the term found in the treatment notes, despite it being mentioned earlier by a doctor. So, you must get an accurate diagnosis and ensure it is in writing.


For the majority, the diagnosis has been vague, misleading, and an understatement of the seriousness of the injury. Examples of mislabeled heart damage include anxiety, rib cartilage strains, indigestion and postural hypotension. Read these articles before proceeding:



Lodge a claim with ACC even if the injury appears to be minor


Any injury to the heart is severe - never minor - and the damage may be long-lasting and, in some cases, permanent. Whatever your injury may be, we may never know to true extent and implications, so I advise planning for the worst while expecting the best. Even if you feel the harm has been minimal and transient, still create the paper trail, including lodging a claim with ACC: you may feel a lot better today, but what about a year from now or even ten years? So be sure to lodge the paperwork without delay: don't wait, or it will be too late.


Your Dr is obliged to file your claim


It is not for your doctor to decide on the merits of a claim with ACC for a vaccine-related injury: that is the role of ACC's assessors to decide its validity. However, consider changing doctors if your doctor refuses to lodge a claim.



Hire a lawyer


If you have a lawyer on your side from the very beginning, ACC is much more likely to be forthcoming with what you are entitled to under ACC legislation and regulations.



When ACC rejects your claim, appeal!


Expect ACC to reject your claim; it is pretty much standard procedure. As many as 80% of applicants will give up at that point, but not you! Since you know it is standard procedure to reject a claim, you are ready to proceed to the next stage, which is to appeal. I recommend you hire either an ACC Advocate or an ACC lawyer at the beginning.


Proceed with lodging the appeal, and make sure you attend the hearing with your lawyer. Do not turn up to a hearing without professional heavyweights supporting you. When they see you coming, they will probably accept your appeal because they are already far too stressed and overworked, and you are far from easy meat and already proving too much trouble!
