ACC Fees

how much will I pay?

you will pay a $60 surcharge per session 

GST inclusive


the balance will be invoiced directly to acc

any herbs, supplements or products agreed upon you will be responsible as acc does not offer cover for those


acupuncture is an accepted treatment procedure by acc for injuries

how does it work?


you will need to visit your gp, osteopath, physio, chiropractor or a&e  first to lodge your injury claim with acc and then you can see your acupuncturist.  just bring  your acc45 number.  


there is no specific referral required at all once your claim has been accepted by acc

authorisation limits


under current acc rules, most injuries are pre-authorised for up to 12 acupuncture treatments that are "necessary and appropriate," based upon your diagnosis

and you will have to use ALL of your authorised treatment within 12 weeks from your first acupuncture session *


if it is determined that additional treatment is necessary on your injury, an  acc32 can be filed on your behalf requesting additional treatments which may be authorised

* your initial acupuncture session must still occur within 12 months of the lodged accident / injury date; only at the first acupuncture treatment does the 12 week treatment window come into effect
