ACC Logo New Zealand accident claims compensation The Physio Room Wanaka 300x238 - ACCThe Accident Compensation Corporation is unique to New Zealand, as it provides comprehensive, no-fault personal injury cover for all New Zealand residents and visitors to New Zealand.

You can apply to ACC for their help, no matter how you got injured or whose fault it was. Their help can include a wide range of services, from payment towards treatments like physiotherapy, to help around the home while you get better and assistance with your income if you can’t work because of your injury.

No you do not, The Physio Room can apply for you. All you have to do is fill in a short form with the details of your accident, we send this away to ACC for you and it takes about 1-3 weeks for them to process your form. You will then get a letter in the post from ACC confirming whether your injury has been approved for funding. Your physiotherapist can guide you through this process, it is very straight forward.

If your injury came on as a gradual process (ie degenerative conditions) over a few days, weeks or months then unfortunately this won’t be covered by ACC and will need to be treated privately. This does not change the quality of your treatment, but unfortunately the cost of your treatment will not be subsidised by ACC.
