Your health provider will make a claimThey'll make sure to fill out all the right forms and will make a claim to us on your behalf.
Pay for part of your appointmentIf we cover your injury, we can contribute to part of your appointment to your health provider as set out by the ACC Cost of Treatment Regulations. You'll need to pay for the rest. Check with your health provider for their fees.
If you have a Community Services Card or are a dependant (14 to 17 years of age) of a Community Services cardholder, you may get a lower-cost visit to your GP. Most GPs will also offer zero-fees for children under 14 years.
