Frequently Asked Questions
Accident Compensation Corporation ACC
If you currently have an injury that has been approved by ACC you are entitled to Acupuncture therapy. All you require is your ACC claim number. ACC will contribute towards your payment. ACC funds Acupuncture as well as Cupping, Moxibustion and Tuina (Chinese medical massage).
Once your ACC claim has been lodged you will receive a text message to confirm that your claim has been accepted. Later you will receive a letter in the post also confirming that your claim has been accepted. In the top right hand corner you will find your ACC45 claim number. If you haven’t received this letter at the time of making your Acupuncture appointment, you can email, text or ring through with your NHI number and we can determine where your claim is at. Please kindly sent this through before your session.
As an Acupuncturist ACC provider I am unable to lodge your initial ACC claim. If you’ve been to A&E or the White Cross you probably completed an ACC claim form then. If your injury is not as severe you can see your GP, a physiotherapist, chiropractor or osteopath who can make the initial assessment & diagnosis and put your ACC claim in. Once your ACC claim has been accepted you will be able to receive subsided Acupuncture treatment. If you are unsure of who to see, please contact us and we will gladly provide you with a referral.
ACC will cover part payment of your Acupuncture session. Your session may also include Tuina (Chinese Medical Massage), Cupping and/or Moxibustion. Please see our services section for more information on these.
