After Hours ACC surcharge: $65
After Hours ACC Fees for Children (under 17) and full-time students (under 22): $55
After Hours means 5.30pm or a later appointment on weekdays, and any appointment on Saturday and statutory holidays.
After Hours Private Patient (non-ACC): $95
After Hours non-acc fee for children and full-time students (under 25): $85
Any osteopath (or physiotherapist) can lodge a new ACC claim for you — you don't have to go to your GP for this.
You generally get ACC for any injury or event where you overload or over-strain any muscle or body site from lifting, carrying, falling, jumping, excessive training or weight lifting, or any sports or gym injury, moving furniture, boxes, loading cars vehicles, etc.
You can pay here with EFTPOS, cash, or by internet bank transfer.
Payment by credit card will incur an additional 3% charge.
Internet bank transfers: ANZ 06 0845 0787597 00 (account name: Christchurch Osteopathy Acupuncture Limited).
Just write COA Ltd for the account name. If paying by bank transfer, the transfer should be made before 5.00pm on the day of your Osteopathy appointment, or the day before.
Should ACC decline to pay towards your treatment costs, either when lodging a new claim, or for a request for extension for treatment for an existing claim, then I will ask you to pay the difference in cost for each treatment you have received within 7 days. This amount is $30 per treatment. This is the difference between the ACC surcharge of $55 ($65 when coming After-Hours) and the Private patient rate of $85 (or $95 when coming After-Hours). Receiving treatment from Christchurch Osteopathy Acupuncture Ltd assumes your full consent and acceptance these 'terms of trade'. As such you are legally liable for any unpaid treatment fees and may face legal action (small claims court and legal costs) if invoices are ignored. Unpaid fees and bad debt will also adversely affect your credit score.
These fees offer exceptional value for an experienced practitioner, After-hours Osteopathy / Acupuncture and real-time internet bookings. You can easily choose the appointment time that suits you best, and book in yourself online. Also, if required and/or requested you can receive Acupuncture in addition to Osteopathy (with no additional fee).
In extenuating circumstances, or cases of genuine hardship, I may be able to offer some concession on these fees. WINZ can contribute towards osteopathy costs if your GP initiates this. But you need to contact your doctor first (not me) then WINZ. You need to pay each time for each appointment with me, then reclaim your treatment fees. (Kingdom clinic, 413 Cashel St, Tel 982 0168, is the least expensive of any Christchurch GP).
The Osteopathy Teaching clinic at ARA has lower fees than other Christchurch osteopaths: Tel: 03 940 8856,
and you can also book online at: www.ara.ac.nz
Medical insurance may cover Osteopathy fees. Fees (or ACC surcharges) need to be paid at the time of the appointment, and reclaimed by you from your insurance. The exception to this is Southern Cross insurance, where I can invoice them directly. If you have Southern cross insurance, please bring your easy-claim card with you.
