ACC dental services are available to those who have suffered dental injuries as a result of an accident or injury that is covered by the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) in New Zealand. The ACC is a government organization that provides no-fault insurance cover for all New Zealand residents and visitors who have been injured in an accident. ACC dental services cover the costs of dental treatment that is required as a result of an accident.
Who is qualified for ACC?
If you have suffered a dental injury as a result of an accident, you may be eligible for ACC dental services. This may include dental treatment such as fillings, extractions, and crowns, as well as specialist treatment. To access ACC dental services, you will need to have your injury registered with ACC, and your dentist will need to provide a treatment plan and cost estimate to ACC for approval. ACC will usually cover a portion of the cost and there will be a portion that the patient is required to pay. This amount will vary depending on approval from ACC.
