New Zealand's has a world-class injury scheme called Accident Compensation Cover. This means that in the unlikely scenario you are injured while in New Zealand - you may be entitled to help.
It is important to note that ACC is purely for accidental injury cover.
- If you were hiking and you twisted your ankle, your medical care would be covered by ACC.
- But if you felt sick and wanted to see a doctor, you would not be covered by ACC.
