Summary

This consultation seeks feedback on the proposed 2.22 per cent increase to Cost of Treatment regulations for services by counsellors, dentists, hyperbaric oxygen, radiologists, medical practitioners, nurses, medical practitioners and nurses, nurse practitioners, specialists and specified treatment providers.

The Cost of Treatment Regulations prescribe the regulated payments made by ACC for consultations, specified treatments and imaging provided to ACC claimants. The Minister for ACC is consulting on changes to the Cost of Treatment regulations to gather information from key stakeholders to ensure the regulations best meet the needs of claimants, the health sector and ACC.

The policy objectives of the annual review are to ensure:

  • payments for entitlements are affordable for claimants
  • costs to ACC are sustainable, affordable and consistent (gradual increases)
  • payments do not cause issues in the health sector.
