ACC Information

You do not require a doctor’s referral to apply for ACC, we can help you fill out the ACC claim form and send it directly to ACC on your behalf.  This can happen at the time of your physiotherapy or podiatry appointment at Capital Sports Medicine.

You will be sent an electronic claim form to fill in prior to your appointment.  We can help you with the details if necessary, when you come in.


Injuries ACC Cover

Our no-fault scheme covers everyone in New Zealand if you’re injured in an accident. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you were doing when you were injured.

Injuries ACC don’t cover

Your injury must be because of an accident. ACC won’t cover things like illness, conditions from ageing and emotional issues.

Treatment ACC can help pay for

ACC can help pay for a range of medical, health and treatment costs if they cover your injury. You may have to pay for part of your treatment costs.

 If you’re a New Zealander injured overseas

If you’re a New Zealand resident and you return home with an injury that happened overseas, ACC can help cover costs.

If you’re a visitor injured in New Zealand

You’ll receive the same ACC cover as everyone else if you have an injury while visiting New Zealand – it doesn’t matter if you’re not a resident.
