If your ACC covered injury happened recently and you had no acupuncture for it:
that’s great, we are able to treat you within a year of the injury without additional paperwork.
If your covered injury happened less than a year ago, but you already had some treatment from another acupuncturist:
We will need to know the precise number of sessions you had so far. If the trigger number has been reached, we may be able to request a prior approval from ACC over the phone. And if your first treatment is within ACC working hours, we are likely to get the approval during your initial appointment.
If your ACC covered injury happened more than a year ago:
We will need to request a prior approval. This includes submitting an additional information about your injury to the corporation. The processing times can vary depending on their workload.
