Reviewing regulated ACC payments for treatment

In conjunction with ACC we conduct a biennial review of the Cost of Treatment Regulations.This is to ensure payments for treatment are affordable for both claimants and ACC and don't cause alignment issues in the health sector.

Objectives of the review

The policy objectives of the regular review of the Cost of Treatment Regulations are to ensure:

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