Submissions due: 18 October 2022, 5pm

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is consulting on updates to the regulated payment rates for ACC treatment.

ACC is required to undertake a regular review of the regulated amounts it is liable to pay towards the cost of injury treatment, given cost pressures in the health sector, and make a recommendation to the Minister for ACC.

The Minister has received ACC’s advice on proposed increases to treatment rates of between 4.6% to 9.36%, apart from a nil increase for audiologists, and also the introduction of a nurse practitioner and registered nurse combined treatment rate. MBIE is now consulting on these proposals on behalf of the Minister.

MBIE is accepting submissions on the proposals from 21 September until 5pm Tuesday, 18 October 2022.
