Hi helpful members

I had quick read of review costs sheet but just was hard to follow.

Can you and where do you put (under which heading) flights cost, taxi etc (to get to med specialist) and kms driven and is this covered by the costs? Tanks.

Yes you can get cost for travel Compassion there is a maximum allowed and off hand I can not recall something like $100 maybe $150 but don't quote me. You can also claim up to $1000 for any specialist/ second opinion visit and subsequent report that aids your case.

Give legal aid or Disputes resolution a call and they will tell you the exact amount and how to claim it.

Good luck.

When ACC requested me to go to specialist in Auckland. Twice in 10 years. They organised and paid for the plane tickets and taxi chits before I went.

Was wondering why they hadnt done this in your case??

If it is that you have had second opinions without their knowledge you will need to request a reimbursement. If they give you that they will probably require a copy of the report from the specialist as they have paid for it.

Always remember there is no harm in asking. They can only say 'no' and then you may ask for costs under a wrongful decision they may have made, as a payment outside the legislation. These add up over the lifetime of your injury, so are well worth keeping a note of.

Good luck
