Resources for Audiologists
From June 2022, Audiologists will be able to lodge ACC claims for noise induced hearing loss. This change removes the need for Audiologists to refer to a GP who would then lodge the hearing loss claim on their behalf.
Software vendors supporting practice management systems used by Audiologists should adopt the following to support your user base.
Claims information can be found on the Claims product page.
Either of the following options would support your user base.
ACC offers Query APIs which provide answers to basic questions that providers often need to progress a claim or regards their invoice progress. Using these saves time making phone calls including the loss of time waiting in a call centre queue. We strongly encourage you set up these APIs as well to support providers.

The detail for each Query API is available through our Product Search.
First time user of ACC APIs
If you are a first time user of ACC APIs then you are encouraged to explore our Developer Resource Centre, and notably the Get Connected - Inbound Data API page which further explains the inbound data API process..
** Coming Soon **
There are many other documents Audiologists need to use to support the new process. We’re currently looking to incorporate these documents into the current Inbound Documents API service.
Feel free to check out the Get Connected - Inbound Documents API process.
If you have any questions, or would like to know more, please feel free to contact us.
