Your first step to recovery

How many treatments will ACC cover?

Each condition is allocated a certain number of treatments by ACC, if further treatment is required your physiotherapist can apply for further treatments from ACC.

How many visits will I need?

Following your initial assessment your physiotherapist can discuss the anticipated number of treatments that may be required for your particular condition. This will need to be reassessed regularly and treatment numbers depend on multiple factors relating to the individual.

What do I need to bring?

Be prepared to provide your previous medical or surgical history. If you have them and if they are relevant bring scan/MRI reports, and list of medication. You may wish to bring shorts and t-shirt.

What should I wear to my appointment?

Loose fitting casual clothing is best. Wear shorts if you have a hip, knee or foot injury.

How do I make an appointment?

You can get in touch by phone 09 626 6186 or use the form under the contact page. Alternatively use the quick and easy online booking page, which is the method we prefer.

Do I have to be referred by a doctor?

No, Physiotherapists can directly register your claim with ACC. We often liaise closely with your GP or specialists when appropriate to deliver the best care to you. Please Note: Only Physiotherapist can generate new ACC Claims. Please make sure you select Physiotherapist as your first appointment if you do not have an ACC number.

If the condition was caused by an injury or specific incident ACC will cover the cost of treatment if you claim is accepted. We endeavor to deliver affordable care to our client and therefore do not have a surcharge if ACC is covering your injury. There are some treatments (such as strapping) which may require an extra charge, your physiotherapist will discuss this with you prior to treatment.

We treat patients with a wide range of conditions and diagnoses.  Please visit our Services for an extensive list of conditions and diagnoses we see patients for.

We will check with your health insurance provide to determine if physiotherapy are covered under your plan. We recommend that you confirm  your insurance coverage.

Our system sends you a friendly reminder via email, within the email you can cancel or reschedule the appointment, this is our preferred method. Alternatively you can call our clinic on 09 626 6186 or flick us an email at admin@physiofusion.co.nz.

 

Missed Appointments

The staff at Physio Fusion respect your time and we ask for the same courtesy. Missed appointments (no shows) affect our ability to provide timely attention to our patients. When a patient does not show up for their appointment, another patient loses an opportunity to be seen. If you are unable to make your appointment, we respectfully ask that you notify our clinic at least 24 hours in advance by email or phone. Failure to cancel an appointment that you do not attend will be considered a missed appointment or no show.

 

Protocol for No Shows:

If you fail to attend the appointment, you could be charged a $30 no show fee. In addition, a course of action will be determined based on the clinic team's review of your case and individual situation. You are directly responsible for payment of the no show fee on or before your next appointment. The no show fee cannot be billed to your insurance company or ACC.
