HOW DOES ACC TREATMENT WORK?
If you have had an accident and need treatment for injury, you can claim for treatment and rehabilitation therapy with ACC. This includes sports injuries, workplace injuries, home injuries, car accidents and all pre and post surgical injuries.
Do I need a Doctor’s referral?
No doctor’s referral is necessary in most cases. We can register your ACC claim directly on your first visit. If you are claiming for occupational overuse injury (sometimes called Occupational Overuse Syndrome: OOS or Repetitive Strain Injury: RSI), you may need a doctor’s referral to claim ACC.
Medical Insurers and Health Insurances
If you have any Health Insurance such as Southern Cross, Life Direct or Accuro – just to name a few – are you getting the full benefit for your money? For instance, Southern Cross Wellbeing Care covers 100% of all physiotherapy fees – ACC surcharge and private included. Most other policies, including the most common one Southern Cross Regular Care, cover 80%. Also, many companies cover their employees for physiotherapy treatment. Check with your employer. Some companies do require a GP referral before treatment, so check your policy to see the specific terms of your provider.
