Increase in ACC payments

ACC has asked the Board to draw practitioners’ attention to the 2.22% increase in contributions ACC pays for treatment, consultation and imaging under the Cost of Treatment Regulations.

The increase to payments for visits and treatments is expected to take effect from 1 December 2016.

ACC says:

“We will work with Practice Management Systems (PMS) vendors to update PMS. For any treatments taking place after 1 December, providers who don’t use a PMS will need to ensure they invoice us at the new rates. Any invoices billed at the old rates will be returned.”

For more information please refer to ACC’s website, and its page on Cost of Treatment Regulations, which will be updated with the updated payment details in mid- to late-October.
