ACC still covers physiotherapy treatment for injuries from accidents.
However, in 2009, ACC reduced the level of funding, and physiotherapists now need to charge a co-payment to help meet the costs of your treatment. You can still go directly to a physiotherapist for treatment, or you may be referred by your GP, a specialist or your employer. Payment is required on the day of treatment, unless otherwise arranged.
First Visit: $38
Follow-Up Visits: $30
There may also be a small charge for materials (e.g. strapping, acupuncture needles).
First Visit: $95
Follow-Up Visits: $70 per visit
Plus any charges for materials (as above). For conditions not covered by ACC but funded by public health, a referral from a hospital or doctor is essential.
At Body In Motion we can cater to everybody’s needs. Have you seen multiple healthcare professionals already for your injury? Perhaps your injury is taking longer to resolve than expected? Not seeing the results you expect? Want to see someone with more experience and extensive post graduate training? Why don’t you talk to us about booking with an “Advanced Practitioner”.
