Accident cover

The Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) is a Government agency that provides comprehensive, no-fault personal injury cover for all New Zealand residents and visitors to New Zealand. Anyone needing emergency care in a hospital as a result of an accident will be covered by ACC.

ACC may also contribute to a wide range of medical and related costs associated with accidents, including doctor’s visits, treatment from various other health professionals, surgery, X-rays and prescription costs. To learn more about what is covered and not covered under the scheme, and how to make a claim, visit the ACC website.

The website also has useful information on how you can protect yourself from injuries at home, at work, in sport, on the road and at school.
