How do I make a claim?

Sensitive claims

ACC can help people with a physical and/or mental injury suffered as a result of sexual abuse or sexual assault.

Differences between the recent ISSC contract and the Cost of Treatment Regulations

The ISSC (Integrated Services for Sensitive Claims) contract and CoTR (Cost of Treatment Regulations) refer to ways we can purchase sensitive claims counselling services.

However, there are key differences between the two purchasing methods.

Information for people who have suffered sexual abuse or sexual assault

FindSupport (external link) is a website that helps you access ACC-funded support following sexual abuse or assault. It tells you how the service works and how to find the right person to talk to.

How GPs and counsellors can request help for a client

Only general practitioners (GPs) and ACC-registered counsellors can lodge sensitive claims with us. How providers can lodge a claim.
