If I have an accident while in New Zealand do I qualify for Accident Compensation Cover (ACC)?

New Zealand's has a world-class injury scheme called Accident Compensation Cover. This means that in the unlikely scenario you are injured while in New Zealand - you may be entitled to help.

It is important to note that ACC is purely for accidental injury cover.

For example:

 - If you were hiking and you twisted your ankle, your medical care would be covered by ACC.
 - But if you felt sick and wanted to see a doctor, you would not be covered by ACC.
