What does ACC cover?

If you have sustained an injury due to an unfortunate event you are likely to be covered for, Bruises, Sprains, Strains, Breaks, Fractures, Stings, Bites, Contusions (cuts), Tears, Dislocations, Herniations...  Depending on the severity of the injury, you may need to get some assistance in the recovery process.  

How to claim

Wether your injury is at home or at work, the first step is to get treatment and or advice as soon as possible.  Waiting to see if its going to get better is ok, however often people require some assistance on their journey to recovery.  

Getting ACC cover is simple, visit your G.P, Physiotherapist, Chiropractor or Osteopath, they will assess your injury & you and the practitioner will fill out a claim form (ACC 45) at the time of consultation, the claim is then lodged with ACC. You will be given a copy of the ACC 45 form you fill out.  You take this to your preferred acc registered treatment provider & entitles you to treatment for that injury.  Treatment numbers vary depending on the diagnosis.  You can see practitioners of more than 1 modality at a time ie, physio and acupuncturist.  Numbers of treatments available are designated to the individual modality  ie for a Lumbar Sprain the trigger is 14 treatments and there will be another amount designated to other modalaties.  The 14 treatments aren't the sum total necessarily.  Treatment is available for the claimed injury only.

What are the costs?

ACC will cover the bulk of the treatment cost; at Nikau Room there is a $25  co- payment for acupuncture treatment, for senior citizens, children and students ACC co-payment is $10 for an hour.
