If your amputation was caused by an accident, ACC may compensate you for the income you have lost and meet a range of medical or rehabilitation costs. Your right to cover is usually established by the ACC following your first medical consultation. You may be entitled to up to 80% of the average weekly wage you earned before the accident to pay for medical and rehabilitation costs, household help or an independence allowance. You will be issued with a claim number which you must quote in all dealings with ACC. You must also provide your Artificial Limb Centre with your claim number
