ACC Partnership Programme

The ACC Partnership Programme enables companies to take over management of their workplace injuries from ACC. Instead of retaining the expertise in-house to achieve this, Wellnz can handle all the day-to-day case management of every injury while at the same time save you significant money.

The ACC Partnership Programme costs less because you only pay for the treatment and rehabilitation of whatever actual injuries occur, rather than a larger premium to cover a theoretical maximum of injuries. Any company paying $150,000 or more in ACC premiums could be eligible to join the ACC Partnership Programme.

Example of a recent company to join the ACC Partnership Programme:

Cost to remain with ACC Cost of ACC Partnership Programme Benefit
ACC Standard Levy $429,750 ACC Partnership Levy $98,000
Plus Experience Rating Loading (33%) $143,250 Plus claims estimates $150,000

$114,600 Plus Wellnz claims management fees $95,000
Total Cost to remain with ACC $458,400 Total Cost of Partnership Programme $343,000 Financial Benefit $115,000

The ACC Partnership Programme provides two options:

Partnership Discount Plan where employers accept responsibility for payment of claims over a fixed period (1 or 2 years).

Full Self-Cover Plan where employers assume financial liability at the end of the claims management period (2 to 5 years) in return for a greater premium discount.

Wellnz will handle the day-to-day management of your ACC Partnership Programme, including:

  • Claims administration
  • Data and claims management systems
  • Customised claims management reporting
  • Service provider payments
  • Management of service providers to agreed quality standards and performance
  • Claims management
  • Case management
  • Claims statistical analysis
  • Review hearings
  • Injury prevention
  • Health & safety advice and training

We can also conduct a feasibility analysis to assess whether the programme would be of benefit to your company, and/or a pre-entry gap analysis to audit your current health and safety, and rehabilitation processes, systems, and procedures to identify system gaps and potential solutions. To have a complimentary Cost Benefit Analysis completed, email your latest ACC invoice and Claims History to enquiries@wellnz.co.nz.
