If it had been an accident, this would be entirely free of charge. However, it's not an accident or a life-threatening illness, therefore it's only subsidised. Because I am in the highest income bracket, I qualify for the lowest subsidy, so I pay - not the full amount, but a lot more than say, my son would.

I'm not sure ACC covers all physio costs. When I got hit by a car in 2007, I wound up paying ~$40 a time for physio for a while, then the subsidy ran out and I had to pay full whack, so I stopped (I wasn't all that good at doing the exercises anyway, so I figured why bother.).

As they're forever tinkering with the level of subsidy, I have no idea what the current situation is, although $wife seemed to get a pretty good deal when she broke her arm, including ACC paying for carpal tunnel surgery.

I haven't had an ACC accident in ages, but last time I did (before the YoT was born), everything was paid for.
