Charges

Everyone in New Zealand has 24-hour, seven-day-a-week, no-fault injury cover through ACC. 

If you or someone you care for is injured, get treatment as soon as possible. Don’t wait, as this can often make the injury worse and your recovery longer.

Your health professional e.g. doctor, physiotherapist, dentist, nurse, will help you fill out an ACC claim form.
 
They will also let you know if there is any part-charge or co-payment. If you are asked to pay the full amount keep the receipt because you may be able to claim some of the money back if you have a claim accepted by ACC.
 
If you need to take time off work because of your injury, discuss this with your doctor or nurse practitioner. They’ll complete a medical certificate for you if they confirm that you do need time off work as a result of the injury and your claim is accepted.
