ACC Partnership Programme

ACC premiums continue to be among the largest insurance cost to most employers. ACC has three alternative risk sharing schemes which enable large employers to make savings of between 30% and 90% on their ACC Premium, in return for assuming the cost of claims made by staff. Employers seeking to join these schemes must also meet injury prevention standards and pass an independent audit.

WorkAon can help assess the risks and benefits of these alternative schemes, and manage the claims and rehabilitation process.

Why WorkAon?

There are a number of qualities which we believe set us apart from other third party administrators:

Nationwide coverage – We have staff in 12 locations around New Zealand which allows us to focus on early contact and face to face rehabilitation with injured employees.

Technical expertise – Our Technical Legal Advisor is available to assist with interpretation and advice on difficult claims, while our Branch Medical Advisors offer advice and support to our case managers on medical issues.

Innovation – We are constantly seeking new ways of providing value for our clients. Our web-based Compcalc enables your payroll staff to calculate weekly compensation and abated compensation instantaneously. We can also provide access to WorkAonLine, a web-based system which gives our clients the ability to view all their claim records online.

Integrity of data reporting - Our claims system has been utilised for four years managing over 100,000 claim records. The stability of our information technology and record of data reporting outweighs the performance of other third party providers.
