"Rationalising" and "updating" the dental rates.

Increasing the general consultation rates by 1.9 percent for some treatment providers as a result of the annual price review.

the regulations are for dental treatment.

I though that ACC was required by legislation to pay reasonable costs. this is 100% for the treatment not part but would be 100% what he charged in the last 12 months for the same treatment.

Consultation on proposed changes to the Injury Prevention, Rehabilitation, and Compensation (Liability to Pay or Contribute to Cost of Treatment) Regulations 2003

This would be a good time to remind the legaslative makers to read all of the conventions signed.

ILO C17 has in it

Article 9
Injured workmen shall be entitled to medical aid and to such surgical and pharmaceutical aid as is recognised to be necessary in consequence of accidents. The cost of such aid shall be defrayed either by the employer, by accident insurance institutions, or by sickness or invalidity insurance institutions.

Article 10
1. Injured workmen shall be entitled to the supply and normal renewal, by the employer or insurer, of such artificial limbs and surgical appliances as are recognised to be necessary: provided that national laws or regulations may allow in exceptional circumstances the supply and renewal of such artificial limbs and appliances to be replaced by the award to the injured workman of a sum representing the probable cost of the supply and renewal of such appliances, this sum to be decided at the time when the amount of compensation is settled or revised.
2. National laws or regulations shall provide for such supervisory measures as are necessary, either to prevent abuses in connection with the renewal of appliances, or to ensure that the additional compensation is utilised for this purpose.


There is a number of other conventions NZ has signed which they need to take part.

This is a good time for everyone to remind these over educated under worked and overpaid person what obligations they must work with in.
