• 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. 

ACC-Covered Injuries

  • First Visit: $30
  • Follow-Up Visits: $25

There may also be a small charge for materials (e.g. strapping, acupuncture needles). 

Private visits

  • First Visit: $85
  • 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.

Cancellation Fee

If you cannot attend your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible. Please Note: Appointments not cancelled at least four hours before the scheduled time will incur a $25 charge.
