Changes to ACC CoverPlus Extra

ACC have recently made some changes to the way they treat ACC Cover Plus Extra, and this could have a significant impact on your policy.

Policy Start Dates

The start date for each new CoverPlus Extra policy will now be the date ACC receives the signed Policy Acceptance Form. The Policy Acceptance Form is sent out for signing following the CoverPlus Extra Application being processed.

As the application can take several weeks to be processed and the postal service can cause further delays, we recommend that clients submit their CoverPlus Extra Application and Policy Acceptance Form by emailing cpx@acc.co.nz .

Overdue Payments

If CoverPlus Extra invoices aren’t paid in full or a payment plan isn’t set up before the due date, ACC will cancel the policy with no further notification provided i.e. no overdue notice.

This doesn’t mean you won’t have any cover, rather that you will revert to the standard cover which may not provide the same level of certainty at claim time. You will need to apply for CoverPlus Extra again if that is your preferred option.

Please speak to your Findex Adviser if you have any further queries.
