ACC is a no faults injury scheme in which ACC may pay for costs related to your injury. Following an injury it is important to speak to your health professional about making an application to register the injury with ACC. ACC will then decide whether to accept the claim. You will get a letter informing you of the decision. If you do not agree with the decision you can ask for a review.
Depending on your injury ACC may pay a proportion of medical costs, provide assistance with home help, special aids or equipment, transport, modiﬁcations to your house or car, education, training, therapy and support.
You may have to pay for some treatment before the outcome of ACCs decisions so keep receipts as you may be able to claim these back if your case is accepted. Use ACC approved providers for any services related to your injury. ACC will not make payment to non-approved providers.
