ACC Sensitive Claims

We are pleased to share that Recovered Living NZ has obtained an ACC contract to provide full cover for residential eating disorder services under ACC Sensitive Claims.  The eating disorder must be covered as a mental injury under the sensitive claim.

Please be aware ACC have advised they cannot guarantee that an enquiry will result in a direct referral for funding, however they have outlined the steps required in order to request funding.  

Wait times for the ACC approval process vary, however our experience to date is approximately 5 months if you are first needing to get your eating disorder covered under a sensitive claim and approximately 2 months if your eating disorder is already covered, and you are requesting an assessment for cover for Recovered Living.
