ACC is seeking applications from Respondents who have the capability to provide Orthotic Services to ACC clients. This is a new contract for the supply of consultations and the provision of orthoses.
While orthoses are included in Public Health Acute Services (provided by DHBs) and some ACC contracts this will be the first ACC contract for Orthotic Services.
The objectives of the new contract are to:
improve timeliness of client treatment by reducing the time for processing applications for prior approval;
put in place minimum quality standards by requiring contracted suppliers to use orthotist providers who are accredited members of their professional association the NZ Orthotist and Prosthetist Association (NZOPA). (Podiatrists providers are registered with the NZ Podiatrist Board and must hold an Annual Practising Certificate);
improve consistency in ACC decision making;
provide ACC with better information about what is being purchased; and
create a platform for future development.
