What would you like to know?
Here you can find answers to help explain your treatment options no matter how simple or complex your injuries may be.
You can qualify for ACC cover for your injury if the incident occurred in New Zealand or if you are a New Zealand resident and were injured overseas.
We can help you make an ACC claim for your injury and complete the required paperwork. For further information about what type of injury ACC will cover and your entitlements please refer to: www.acc.co.nz.
If your claim is approved by ACC then you qualify to have your consultation costs at Podium subsidised by ACC. ACC will pay a portion of the cost, while you pay a smaller co-payment as outlined in our fees structure.
Yes, absolutely! Our team is here to help you regardless if you have ACC cover or not. You may qualify for private insurance and work insurance to cover the consult costs. Please contact your insurer or work place to check your policy cover.
Please refer to our fees structure for Non-ACC consult costs.
Technically there is no such thing as “free treatment”. These clinics charge ACC every time you see them.
Understandably it sounds awesome that you don’t have to contribute payment yourself. However, we do question what value these businesses place on their staff and the quality of services that they provide to you. This business model only works by having large patient volumes through the doors.
The result of a high volume model is that there are significant constraints to your consult times which impacts on the thoroughness of your assessments and treatments, and potentially your injury outcomes.
What is the cost to you when you don’t achieve the desired outcomes from your injury? Time off work, time away from sports, time having to keep going back to physio and time bouncing between different health professionals. At Podium we value your time and we value our expertise providing you with excellent care.
