ACC FUNDING CHANGES – 1 July 2017
With effect from 1 July 2017, there are changes to the process for those individuals who have had a lower limb injury and are needing Orthoses. The Podiatrist is now contracted with ACC to provide orthotics, bracing and footwear for those individuals who qualify. There is no longer the need for an assessment by a Specialist, nor the previous lengthly delay in the application process, so patients can be seen immediately, reduced wait times, and therefore the recovery process can commence much sooner.
The ACC contract covers:
- 100% funded Foot orthotics
- 100% funded Ankle braces and supports
- 100% funded Knee braces and supports
- 100% funded Customised footwear
