Visiting the physio will cost patients at least $10-20 each time, now that the ACC has decided to cut costs.
From November 16, accident victims will be billed for each visit to a physiotherapist, following ACC's client co-charging scheme announced yesterday. The move comes after ACC Minister Nick Smith announced, in March, that several entitlements would be cut in response to a blow-out in treatment costs.
A statement from the organisation yesterday said it needed to contain the rising costs of delivering clinical services - including physiotherapy.
